The Retail Bulletin launches its 4th Multichannel Retailing Summit

Multichannel, Omnichannel – whichever way you look at it, how do retailers catch the new channel-hopping customer and keep them in store or online and most importantly buying within their own brand?


The Retail Bulletin launches its 4th Multichannel Retailing Summit

New technologies enabling new consumer touch points like smartphones, Tablets, mobile social media, means customers are now hyper connected. The empowered consumer exhibits a short attention span, a demand for immediate satisfaction, a lack of patience for products that don’t fit their needs, and intolerance for sub-par service. Therefore in order to attract and retain customers, companies need to respond quickly to customer preferences.

So how to you develop new approaches to the customer relationships in a 360 multichannel environment? In many cases this is driving the need for more multi-channel partnerships as a vital enabler.

Moving away from a ‘one size fits all’ multichannel approach towards a more targeted and personalised strategy is vital to create relevance across all customer touchpoints.

There is also the the critical issue of the future of the physical store, its role within the multichannel mix and how it connects with shoppers at the important point of purchase.

Add in the social media opportunities available and you have a potent mix which, if executed correctly, can make the difference between success or failure for today’s and tomorrow’s retailers.

The Summit will be held in London at Cavendish Conference Centre, London W1 Wednesday 6th February 2013.
