“The retail sector is an innovation powerhouse with many new advances shaking up the market and defining what the future shopping experience will look like. At IRX & eDX this May, we’re welcoming established innovators to share their experience as well as showcasing the up-and-coming disruptors in the sector.” Louise Smith, events manager at IRX & eDX, explains the focus on innovation running throughout the show.
IRX (InternetRetailing Expo) & eDX (eDelivery Expo) - the UK’s leading digital retail show - takes place 11 & 12 May at Birmingham’s NEC. Retailers, brands, industry experts, and retail vendors are invited to gather at the UK’s leading digital retail event to hear from thought-leaders, discover innovative technology and supercharge their skillset with free learning opportunities.
Industry leaders will share their insight in a dedicated program of learning taking place throughout the two days of the show – attendees can expect to hear first-hand experience and robust debate around challenges in a comprehensive program of conferences and workshops.
“Innovation needs to be at the heart of any online business today to succeed in the digital age. It's not enough to adapt to new technologies – you need to anticipate your customers' needs and develop the new digital strategies to create a competitive advantage.” That’s according to Mike Goodenough, Global Head of e-Retail at Worldline Digital Commerce, and Geoffroy Robin, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Livescale who will together discuss How to elevate your customer experience with Live Shopping at the conference keynote.
Current and future innovations making waves in the sector are explored as part of a workshop Shaping retail ambitions: the key trends, behaviours, and innovations defining retail in 2022 and beyond. Experts from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) will unpack the results of their survey of 40,000 consumers and 11,000 businesses around the world. The tangible benefits of digital transformation, the future of physical retail, and the power of connected payment data will all be explored in this practical session.
