This year we’re mixing it up at IRCE, hosting an Innovation Theater at the FitForCommerce booth (#1701) Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th. At FitForCommerce it’s our job to stay on top of new technologies and innovations, but keeping up with the latest and greatest takes time and resources – both of which are scarce for most retail organizations. In our recent Retail Executive Survey, we asked retailers about the things holding them back from innovating – budget, other priorities and lack of proven ROI tops the list with most.
DIGITAL EXECUTIVES NEED HELP
- Finding the right balance between “wow factor” and ROI
- Focusing on opportunity costs vs. costly mistakes
- Building the business case for emerging technology investments
- Juggling under-resourced digital teams
- Navigating an overwhelming vendor landscape
"Our future growth relies on competitiveness and innovation, skills and productivity...
and these in turn rely on the education of our people."

Redefining Commerce: Welcome to the New Retail Reality
Wake up to the new disruptive retail reality – where the shopper is in the driver’s seat, the lines between discovery and entertainment blur, and the physical and digital worlds cross paths. In this spotlight report prepared for Shoptalk 2016, we will explore how traditional commerce is going in new directions, forcing retailers to explore new ways to invest, impress and improve.
From the transformation of traditional sales channels to the rise of new technologies to on-demand, custom everything, we will look at innovative/disruptive moves retailers must make to lead – and succeed.
