Confirmed speaker line-up for 3rd Multichannel Retailing Summit
The latest annual IT in Retail report which researched the UK's leading 100 retailers has revealed that for the first time ever, top retailers' priority for IT investment is e-commerce and mobile commerce.
The research, by specialist retail consulting company Martec International and sponsored by BT Expedite, found that e-commerce and m-commerce is the main investment priority, growing from 17% last year to 23% this year. This overtook investment in store systems, which has been the focus for the previous nine years.

The one-day event will be fully interactive and gives delegates the chance to ask questions and discover insights from retail experts in the multichannel space.
