In-store automation and communication in global retailing moving forward

The retail industry is undergoing tremendous change. Retailers need to adapt to market trends such as inflation, limited staff availability, and changed consumer behaviours – trends that may permanently reshape the industry. To adapt and stay ahead of the competition, in-store digitalization is critical to driving profitability and consumer loyalty.

With 40% of all food produced is wasted, award-winning food waste campaigner Matt Homewood will uncover the global food waste farce and review the impacts.

Improve the efficiency and sustainability of your Retail supply chain

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, the labour shortage was causing many companies to consider dramatically changing their operation and implementing automation wherever possible. The global interruption of supply chains caused by the pandemic has now sped up that cycle. Sustainability is another hot topic. Everybody is looking to reduce their “carbon footprint”, but not at the cost of losing operational efficiency and effectiveness. In our presentation, we will go through some wheeled logistics solutions to show how they can help you both reach your efficiency goals and your sustainability targets.

Autonomous Store Experience

The self-serving store is not just a concept anymore. And it is not as highly expensive technology as was in the Amazon Go case. The talk will present an autonomous store concept by LS Retail. Together we’ll take a look at the retailer’s case where the concept is already implemented and working successfully.
