By February 16, 2015 No Comments

San Francisco, CA February 16th, 2015—Tomorrow evening, the Retail Evolution Summit opens its doors to retail’s marketers, designers, technologists and innovators. The retailers joining us represent a range of brand categories, from fashion to beauty to lifestyle brands, including Nordstrom, Levi Strauss, Safeway, Target, and Wells Fargo among others. Take a look at what’s ahead as we put the final touches on the event.

Lend your ears, and your minds
We have a number of industry experts speaking at the Summit, all with different backgrounds in retail, ready to share insights on their respective disciplines. Our speaking sessions include addresses from design industry leaders David Kepron and Lee Peterson, consumer insights from Todd Hale, and retailer and agency spotlights from the likes of Nordstrom, AT&T, Square, Microsoft Retail, TPN, MaxMedia, and Two West. Professor and Executive Director, Retail Management Institute at Santa Clara University, Dale Achabal, will also be offering academic perspective.

Let’s talk about it
Interaction and networking plays a big role at the Summit as well. We have a number of roundtable discussions covered the biggest topics in the retail industry today such as:

Mobile: changing the face of retail
The world is moving faster than ever. Information is instantly accessible at the swipe of a finger. Discuss the effect mobile technology is having on blending the retail experience with everyday life.

Creating a seamless in-store tech experience
Mobile, beacons, BLE, UDID. These buzz words are heard all over the industry, but do we truly understand how to utilize and implement them into the in-store experience?

The connected sales associate
The sales associate is the face of your brand and the most valuable link to your customers. How can brands empower those on the front lines for a more efficient and engaging experience?

The Internet of things – what it means to today’s retailers
The Internet of things has enabled retailers to optimize assets and enhance customer interaction like never before. How has the connection between business tools and customer insights impacted your retail experience?

The Summit team would like to thank our awesome sponsors for all of their efforts leading up to the big affair:
