It is clear that the fashion industry and all B2C sectors have been disrupted through changes in the consumer shopping experience.  Emerging technologies such as AR, VR, Machine Learning, AI and blockchain continue to redefine the industry. AI has the ability to help brands and retailers with predictive forecasting, capacity planning and merchandising. AR allows for convenience and eliminates the need to test physical products in-store. Blockchain can help brands garner greater trust with shoppers building brand loyalty throughout the product lifecycle.

Our panel features innovators who have differentiated themselves through sophisticated automation, and are here to share their insights on the influences that are reshaping the balance of power in international markets.  From new ways of managing inventory to new channels for distribution to delivering product on time at lower costs to offering high touch customer personalization, they understand the importance of channeling limited resources to more effectively compete on the global stage.  Our goal is to help you learn from their experience and insights, as well as discover new ways to provide a more fruitful customer experience without adding layers of staffing.
