The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical connected/smart devices, machinery, buildings and many other items that can collect and exchange data.

This giant network of connected “things” is already disrupting every industry and nowhere more so than in RETAIL.

Offering much-improved omnichannel selling opportunities, enhanced location-based customer experiences and insight and maximised operational, inventory and supply chain efficiencies; IoT has the potential to completely change the way retail operates.

Gartner predicts by 2020 there will be over 26 billion connected devices including everything from cellphones, store cameras, lorries, beacons and supermarket fridges to vending machines, tablets, warehouse machines, payment systems and wearable devices.

With a $326 billion worldwide retail IoT revenue opportunity predicted by IDC by 2018 it’s no wonder that 60% of UK retailers alone already have a dedicated budget for hugely disruptive IoT.

Whether you are an early adopter, or this is the first you’ve heard of it, IoT is happening now. In order to stay ahead of the curve and drive competitive advantage there is tremendous value in being part of the early conversations as IoT moves at great speed.

Join us in May at this fresh, retail-focused, highly interactive learning and networking opportunity to find out:
  • How do you build an IoT strategy or develop the one you have and why do you need to do it now?
  • What IoT strategies should you have for your stores, IT, customers, marketing, operations and supply chain?
  • What do your peers think? How are they reacting to the IoT challenge and embracing the opportunity?
  • Most importantly; how can leverage IoT to drive profit, customer experience, competitive advantage and efficiency in the new connected world and protect yourself from its risks?
