New Retail – Transform & Grow

In his 2017 letter to Alibaba shareholders, Jack Ma championed: "the integration of online, offline, data and logistics across a single value chain". The buzz around "New Retail" hasn't stopped since! 

Retail needs to wake up - the game has changed forever. You can sit on the sidelines and watch. Or you can compete.

This session provides an unprecedented insight into how our panelists are transforming their operating ecosystem into an agent for exponential growth.
