An overarching goal of this year’s conference is inspiring brands to evolve with retail’s digital transformation. One major lesson: Ecommerce’s back end is the key to customer experience.
Attendees had the opportunity to attend the Global E-Commerce Leaders Forum prior to the conference, where the talk of the day was how retailers and global brands can get their hands into the fastest growing market in the world — China.
Shop.org’s TechLab allows attendees to experience “technologies of the future” via custom-designed simulations in store, home and office environments. Low-tech foot scanning and outfit personalization were two topics in discussion.
