This year, for the second time I’ll be attending Internet Retailing Expo 2019 on the 3rd and 4th of April at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham. I’m excited about attending the industry event which brings together practical advice, hands-on training an networking opportunities to prepare today for the retail of tomorrow. At the event, I will listen and learn from conference tracks featuring themes from marketing, international growth, customer obsession, final mile to new technology, scaling up, omnichannel innovation and operational excellence. Across four individually-themed theatres, I’m interested in learning first-hand from retailers, brands and suppliers in the field who explore challenges and opportunities faced by retail sellers. Here are some of the keynotes I’m excited to attend.
