A pan-European mix of senior retailers are preparing to participate in a new, high-level Summit in Berlin this June. Emma Herrod reports on the event.
THE INTERNETRETAILING Summit is an exclusive, invitation-only event, produced by InternetRetailing Events and held at the 5* andel’s Hotel, Berlin from 27-29 June. There is an admission policy of invited attendees only from Europe’s Top 500 retailers in order to create the right, senior-level peer group match.
Characterised by a series of off-the-record, carefully curated, round-table discussions and quick-fire, animated debates the InternetRetailing Summit brings together leading heroes, thinkers and doers in European retail for a frank exchange of views, experience and insight. At the end of the event, delegates will have a new toolkit of ideas and knowledge to prepare and inspire them for future retail success.
Around 150 delegates will take part in the three-day event, presenting a rare opportunity for real peer-to-peer engagement – it offers networking and knowledge-sharing on a whole new level.
A gathering of delegates from right across Europe, representing multi-sector pan-European retail operators, promises to provide the breadth and depth of experience needed for a stimulating discussion about the challenges of operating in this diverse continent.
Run in conjunction with the brand new IREU Top500 Report, which will be previewed exclusively to delegates at the Summit and which is the latest offering in the IREU Report rollout from InternetRetailing, this is where you will engage with senior peers from companies including: Carhartt, Ikea, El Ganso, Lufthansa, Facebook, Breuninger, Swarovski, Carrefour, Bauhaus, Mister Spex and Ralph Lauren to name a few.
“Retailers from Europe’s Top500 are invited to the IR summit.”
A stellar, pan-European speaker line-up promises new insights and a highly immersive programme. The programme comprises a multi format structure centred around:
- Leader panels chaired by Ian Jindal, Founder & Editor in Chief, InternetRetailing: fire questions at the panel as they debate issues such as What Does A Seamless Consumer Experience Look Like Today?
- Moderated discussions in small groups examining one of six key retail ‘Performance Dimensions’: Customer Experience; Mobile; Operations & Logistics; Brand & Engagement; Merchandising; Strategy & Innovation. These sessions provide unparalleled access to real scenarios revealing how retailers have overcome specific performance challenges;
- Round table discussions examine real-life experiences, exploring the challenges and solutions applied, leaving delegates with practicable intelligence that they can apply to their own businesses;
- The NextGen Technology workshops expose some of the newest technology developments promising to shape and underpin the next phase of retail growth.
