Confirmed speaker line-up for 3rd Multichannel Retailing Summit

The event, which is organised by The Retail Bulletin was a sell-out this year and is set to do the same again.

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 Retail Bulletin’s Multichannel retailing summit will examine how retailers can maximise profits and market share through cost effective, engaging and seamlessly integrated multichannel strategies. 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.

The event, which will be held in London on 1st February 2012, is retailer-led and confirmed speakers include, Schuh, ASOS, Santander UK plc, Marks & Spencer,, Game Group, Halfords, Alexon Group plc, , Everything Everywhere, o2 Telefónica, Penhaligon, Joules Clothing, Adnams Plc, Best Buy UK, Collect Plus, Norbert Dentressangle.

Richard Lowe, CEO, BT Expedite, said, “Retailers are generally holding IT spending constant again in 2011, but there’s a positive indication of an increase of retailers planning to upgrade key business systems to keep pace with the continuing shift to multichannel retailing, as well as the growth of mobile internet access and m-commerce.”
