Store Transformations - Flooid Vantage Point 2020


The global pandemic has taught the retail community more about disruptors than the most powerful recessions, depressions, and world wars. At the same time, we know that Covid-19 exposed the technological weaknesses and overall lag between retailers and consumer expectations that lurked below the surface. Some retailers were ready for Covid. Most were not. So how do we move on from here? 

In this session on Store Transformations, thought leaders from several key facets of the retail industry will come together to share how they have helped shape and reinvent retail by leveraging partnerships and rapid innovation to meet the particular demands of today’s retail shoppers.

This event, hosted by Flooid and moderated by Intel, is sure to bring clarity and remove doubt about the power of nurturing a collaborative ecosystem of partners and innovators.
