Elliott Winskill, Product Manager for Store Enabler, talks about his visit to Tech by Retail Week.
Between the 13th and 14th of September, I attended the Retail Week Tech: Transform Together conference at Here East, London. With amazing attendees like Amazon, Google, Facebook, Oracle, IBM and an array of start-ups and tech companies, I was in good company. I went there to understand the impact of technology on the retail market and how advanced into the mobile revolution retailers are currently at.
I learned a lot about the current mindset of the retail market, the importance of innovation and the evolution of the on demand. Amazon was the common theme throughout the conference and clearly are currently the innovation leaders.
Below are a few things that I took away from the conference, these are very much my interpretation others will have different views, which is exactly why the conference was such a success.
These views do not give justice to the level of the information, knowledge and great debate that was held at the conference and the following is my review of the event itself.
Overall the event was brilliant and was a worthwhile two days, having come away with many questions about how we can evolve to meet future retail needs. The event brought together the major technology firms that are changing the face of retail and I am determined we are going to be a part of that revolution and Store Enabler will have a major part to play.
Taken from the presentation of Paul Misener (VP Global Innovation and communication, Amazon):
“All leaders make bad decisions and not all innovation works but never stop trying something new because when it works it pays off. Just never bet the company.”
