The theme of the Retail Week Live 2020 – Retail Evolved: Thriving in A Digital World – will see senior business leaders from the world’s biggest retailers tackling the issues that are contributing to unprecedented challenges in retail following the worst year on record for the industry in 2019.
Dave Lewis (ceo, Tesco), Peter Jelkeby (country retail manager UK & Ireland, Ikea), Richard Walker (managing director, Iceland Foods) and Beth Horn (head of industry for retail, Facebook) will be among 200+ influential figures speaking at Retail Week Live 2020, which is taking place on March 25-26 at The Intercontinental, 02, in London.
Other speakers from global brands taking to the stage include Amazon, Nespresso, The Body Shop, Starbucks, McDonald’s, Primark, Boots, Green & Blacks, Sweaty Betty, Sainsbury’s, Crosstown Doughnuts, LEGO, Hema and Pets at Home.
The digital evolution, sustainability, the declining high street, as well as how to win business from an increasingly conscious consumer, will be addressed in a packed programme at the two day event.
“Retail is facing the greatest period of disruption in living memory,” states Hannah Tovey, Retail Week Live’s programme director. “Retail and commerce businesses know that they cannot keep up with the pace of change alone. Building an ecosystem that will fuel growth has become critical to success and this is where the new Retail Week Live comes in.”
In a series of strategic sessions, workshops and seminars, the two-day conference will provide delegates with ideas, insights and the tools required to lead through the digital transformation
