‘Thinking Retail Symposium’ is back: the unique planning symposium dedicated to merchandise lifecycle management, will be held in Amsterdam, the 23 March, followed by a US event in April. Organised by TXT Retail and now in its 10th edition, last year, the event series attracted over 350 of the who’s who of international brands and retailers across Europe and the US.
Under the theme 'merchandising success in the age of anywhere, anytime retailing', Thinking Retail will examine the business processes and technology essential to merchandising success, featuring an exchange of ideas, research and case studies with an all-star cast of diverse global retailers and thought leaders.
Speakers include TXT Retail Customers: adidas, leader in the sporting goods industry; DFS Group, the world's leading luxury travel retailer; Furla, one of the major players in the worldwide leather goods market; NYDJ Apparel, leading US women’s denim and casual apparel retailer; Sonae, the largest retail company in Portugal.
The keynote speaker, Nikki Baird, managing partner of RSR – Retail Systems Research, will deliver the presentation, 'The Top 5 Questions Facing Merchants in the Next 5 Years', which will focus on how the rules of retail are changing and how to prepare for those changes now. Additional sessions will include presentations by TXT Retail and partners Columbus Consulting, who will also moderate the final roundtable.
"With the impact of Omni-channel, no team in retail faces more disruption than the merchandise office for whom the ‘one-plan-fits-all’ needs to be replaced with curated offerings by channel and localized assortments," said Peter Charness, TXT retail SVP and CMO. "Thinking Retail are unique events focused on planning and merchandising and the ideal venue for the retail community to exchange ideas with peers facing common challenges, enjoy great content in a thought provoking atmosphere and take back practical learnings to apply to their business”.
The format of these events include abundant networking opportunities and Q&A sessions. At the Tech Corner, attendees will be able to experience live demonstration of TXT Retail 8, the next generation of TXT Retail's end-to-end merchandise lifecycle management solution featuring new in-memory planning and visual planning capabilities.
