1 year later – The Amazon effect and supermarket of the future: What we got right, wrong and how AI will take us forward

4:30pm – 5:00pm  |  Wednesday October 3rd

This time last year, many predictions were made in the retail industry.  The Amazon Effect would keep shoppers out of stores.  The Whole Foods acquisition would change the face of grocery forever.  Private label-led stores like Lidl and Aldi would march on with unprecedented growth.  Prepared foods would continue its dominance on our dinner tables.

While many of these projections did not meet original forecasts, they did cause an industry transformation.  Great retailers stayed on the growth curve by responding with platforms and technology.  The others who stayed satisfied with status quo suffered.

This keynote will give an update of what happened in the last year and discuss about how the successful path for retail has changed, continues to morph and how AI will play an important part in this journey.

Continuing on from the keynote session, panelists will discuss and debate the themes and trends and discuss how successful companies transform and reinvent themselves to stay ahead of the growth curve.
