Event description
The 2020 Robin Report Executive Retail Forum takes a deep dive into identifying six major trends that will transform the future of retail.

About this Event

Overview

The digital marketplace has changed the rules of retail and consumerism. The retail industry is in the throes of a major transition; legacy brands are transforming their models into a tech-infused, digital platform leveraging machine learning and frontier technologies. The digitally native brands are expanding into physical retail stores designed to enhance the customer experience and accelerate customer acquisition. Both the old world and new world are meeting head-on, and the successful companies will emerge as collaborative innovators blending the two worlds together seamlessly, delivering value and meaning to demanding consumers who have become the POS, wherever they are and at any time of the day.

The 2020 Robin Report Executive Retail Forum takes a deep dive into identifying major trends that will transform the future of retail and consumerism. Speakers will include provocative business leaders, thought leaders, academics and the 2020 Retail Radicals Award winners. The program will reveal the strategies, tools, models and innovative visions that are shaping a sustainable future for the retail sector and consumerism at large.

Who Attends

The Spring Robin Report Forum will be attended by C-level and executive-suite retail and brand professionals among TRR's 14,000 subscribers. Executives in operations, marketing, strategy, information, finance and business development will benefit from the content designed to raise the bar of the industry and help leaders anticipate the future, not catch up to it.
