Retail Ignition: The Future of Choice

The landscape of choice has changed. More choice no longer means more sales. In fact the reverse is true.

On Thursday 2nd February the iris Nursery welcomed guests to an insightful morning debate. We explored how consumers experience choice in the face of fragmentation and automation, and how retailers can ensure their innovation agenda measures up.

It was a fantastic morning of inspirational thinking, passionate debate, eye opening tech demos along with a healthy portion of coffee and pastries.

Catch all of the highlights below.
