How will we shop in five years time? What devices will we use to buy? How much shopping will we do in store, and how much online? How can and should retailers adapt?

Having answers to those questions will help retailers of all sizes to plan for the future. And who better to ask than members of the industry who are driving that change? That’s why InternetRetailing is asking its readers to help answer these questions and more in a survey, The Futuristic Shopper and your Five Year Retail Vision, running ahead of IRX 2014. Results will be unveiled at the annual expo.

Ian Jindal, editor-in-chief of InternetRetailing, said: “We can see the retail industry changing around us, thanks to the influence of the internet and the new, multichannel, ways of shopping that it encourages.

“Through this survey we want to gain some insights into how the professionals who are driving this change believe the industry will develop over the next five years. That will give us, and you, collective insights that will help companies to plan as consumer behaviour changes. You can contribute towards that by taking part in our survey, and we hope you’ll do so.”

If further encouragement were needed to take part in this eight-question survey, there’s a £250 Amazon voucher to be won by one lucky participant.
