COMPLETED – Roundtable: Tech in retail and e-commerce


The transformation of the retail sector will be the subject of a BusinessCloud roundtable. This event is by invitation only.

Wednesday July 13, 9am-11am
UKFast Campus, Birley Fields, Manchester, M155QJ

The world of retail is changing and technology is the catalyst for change.

The traditional high street has been transformed as customers have migrated online and successful retail is now likely to include discussions around analytics, big data and algorithms as well as advertising and supply chains.

The UK’s newest technology magazine – BusinessCloud  – is hosting a roundtable on July 13 on the importance of technology in modern retail.

The panel will be made up of other retailers and retail experts and will be chaired by editor Chris Maguire.
