NEW RETAIL IS HERE

The coronavirus pandemic has changed everything, from the way we live, to the way we work, and the way we shop. It has accelerated the transformation of the retail industry like never before.

New Retail, a term coined by Jack Ma of Alibaba, is the seamless merger of online and offline commerce through the digitization of the entire retail value chain. The new reality is very clear: retailers and brands who will not invest in technology and move to New Retail will stay behind.

New Retail Fest is a global community of retailers, brands, retail tech and eCommerce companies, startups, investors, tech companies and everyone involved in the retail technology world. Our events present practical solutions that enable retailers and brands to stay relevant in these difficult times, connect decision makers and enable the creation of new business opportunities.

We invite you to join our events to learn what’s coming next, showcase your solutions to a high quality audience of decision makers, make new connections and take your business to the next level!

COVID has changed everything, from the way we live, to the way we work and shop. These dramatic shift in consumer behavior and closing of physical stores have accelerated the digital transformation of the retail industry like never before.

Even before COVID, the retail industry has been extremely competitive. Now, the established brands and retailers have to compete with new, digital-first global players.

In this panel we will explore the latest trends, challenges and opportunities for brands, retailers and anyone who wants to survive in the rapidly changing retail environment.

Moderator: Krishna Prasad, Chief Customer Officer, UST

Using the Zeekit technology allows your customers to have a more realistic idea of what the garment would look like on multiple sized models with different body types or even on themselves.
