Tech. Tribes

Tech. brings together the entire commerce ecosystem – from retailers, brands and CPGs to start-ups, investors, solutions providers and future talent. Meeting at Printworks on the 2-3 October for two days of learning, networking and discovery, whilst, the amount going on could at times be overwhelming.

To make your time at Tech. easier, more targeted and better placed to meet people with the same common goal, we’ve created Tech. Tribes. Linked to the five main themes of the event, by selecting your theme of choice, you will be connected to others in your tribe with your own recommended agenda, suggested exhibitors and start-ups to meet and other people in the industry to connect with. Feel connected and united with others in the industry and beyond and find your tribe.

Digital Ecosystem – The Digital Collaborators

More and more businesses are partnering to leverage expertise and gain competitive advantage together. To win a piece of the pie, it is necessary to know what to build in house, what to buy, where and how to partner and then how to manage these partnerships, specifically with data transparency, all with the end goal of creating something useful for the customer.


  1. Workshop
    Come and meet with your tribe at the new Tech. Meet-Ups. The Tech. Meet-Ups are designed to ensure you meet and network with those with similar interests. These informal networking sessions create the environment to have conversations around key challenges facing your tribe and come up with ideas and solutions to tackle these.


Tech talent – The Talent-Seekers

The war for top tech talent is absolutely fierce across the entire spectrum of the economy. Commerce is no different. No matter who you are, you need the top tech talent in order to crush your competitors. Attracting the top tech talent and embedding a digital-first approach in your organisation will be key to winning.


Supply Chain - The Final Milers

Supply chain technologies are advancing at rocket speed and the enterprises that can identify where to invest and innovate will win. Businesses that can successfully develop their endless aisle, optimise their final mile, remove cost and improve efficiencies, despite perhaps having legacy systems, will be the most competitive.


Future of the store – The Store Superheroes

The role of the physical store is changing and the retailers that do not evolve with the times will lose. The retailers and brands 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. Curation will also be a key winning strategy, and the most effective merchandise assortments will be the fruit of great partnerships and sharing of data which will ensure that store assortments bring value and convenience to the customer. Learn from those whose bricks are geared up to survive the next wave of the digital revolution!


Customer engagement and retention –The Customer Evangelists

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. Being able to democratise and weaponise your data is a necessary foundation for this 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 understand their customers, make smarter decisions and provide better customer experiences.
