We can take you and your team to the most advanced and innovative retail cities including but not limited to:
Technological innovations are empowering shoppers and customer experience is a key priority. Successful retailers have introduced digital technologies that have low capital investment and are easy to update and rollout at scale. The increasing use of AI and ML will allow retailers to significantly advance their personalisation strategies.
Experimental and exciting concepts will continue to dominate new format developments including in-store partnerships. These allow retailers to emphasis areas which are harder to replicate in the online environment. In-store farming, food theatre and provenance are among the tactics we will see more frequently.
Shoppers expect the FCMG industry to lead on key sustainability issues. Retailers will continue to implement solutions to reduce packaging, specifically plastic packaging, and food waste. They will progress with strategies to reduce their operating and supply chain environmental impact.
