The era of smarter retail

Customers are more influential than ever before, and retail strategies are being built around their needs, behaviors and preferences. But don’t think about throwing out the old playbook: Physical stores work hand-in-hand to boost e-commerce, direct mail moves the needle, and word-of-mouth drives sales. What’s changed is the resources needed for customer information and data insights to form strategic decisions. Retailers have to smarten up, or miss out. At the Digiday Retail Summit, we’ll hear from industry executives who are using customer data and technology to drive innovation and improve experiences across the board.

I made so many fantastic connections at the Digiday Retail Summit. The mix of thoughtful programming and downtime to mingle was perfection. I'll definitely be back.

I love the structure of this event. The sessions are always very informative but the networking is the best part. This was my second time attending and each time I was able to look around the room and feel as if I'd found my tribe.
