WIRED retail is running an event in London on 24 November about the future of retail – the promotion says:
‘The retail sector is undergoing the biggest transformation since the car enabled the out-of-town shopping mall. WIRED Retail will bring together startups, tech giants and established players to discuss the converging trends and technologies disrupting commerce today.
At this one-day conference, WIRED will unravel the themes defining the merging on- and off-line retail space’
The event includes discussion of ‘socially-curated marketplaces’ and ‘shopping across every device’ – if you are interested in having a look at what this end of the industry is thinking, you can see it here
The promotional website has an interesting article that is downloadable (e-commerce is history) that has insights into how the industry sees this developing, and includes a section on UK supermarket Tesco’s new high tech store in Watford.
