The digital revolution has seen the most challenging time in the history of global commerce destroying traditional business models as we know them.
As consumers’ appetite to adopt new innovations at an extraordinary rate of change continues, retailers are struggling to keep up. Only those brave and agile enough to adapt will survive. Those that don’t are not likely to trade past 2020 and this is their biggest fear.
Tech. is the most important two-day festival of digital commerce and the technology driving it in 2019.
Tech. is the only event in 2019 where retailers, CPGs, DTC, tech suppliers, start-ups, investors and analysts join forces to work out how they not only survive the digital revolution but nail it.
At Tech. we put the most disruptive thinkers under the spotlight - from the companies that are revolutionising their industries, to the tech firms creating the most innovative of products.
We bring together more than 2,500 people and 180+ speakers from 800+ companies across the globe. Tech. provides the biggest and boldest platform for digital leaders in commerce and the smartest minds in technology to shape the future of the industry.
The biggest names in the business. Geniuses of commerce technology from the companies leading the way.
Being able to democratise and weaponise your data is a necessary foundation for any successful business and done properly, will be a game-changer. Businesses armed with the right data skills and understanding will win because they will be equipped with the knowledge necessary to make smart decisions and provide better customer experiences.
Ownership of the traditional consumer-retailer relationship has fundamentally shifted. The retailers that will succeed will be those who are able to deeply understand their customer, exceed their expectations, adapt quickly to change, and become truly customer-centric by placing their customer at the heart of everything they do.
Brick and Mortar
The role of the physical store is changing and the retailers that do not evolve with the times will lose. The companies that are winning are those who are transforming their stores into experiential spaces where technologies are used to remove friction from in-store processes and collect on valuable customer insights.
Whats on: Discovery
Retailers need speed, agility and early innovation to disrupt before their competitors do. This is where the start-up zone at Tech. came into play. Discovery at Tech. provided retailers with a platform to find that next innovation, while giving tech start-ups the opportunity to flaunt their wares to a room full of influential decision makers in retail technology. The perfect opportunity for start-up's who have the technology that is going to change the face of retail to show it off!
