Customer Experience 2020: Omni-Channel Retailing & Loyalty

Consumers now expect a seamless experience as they engage more actively with retailers in-store, online and on the go. From inventory availability to loyalty programs and synchronized support, both in-store and across devices, retail brands are in a unique position to build meaningful customer affinity on the path to purchase and beyond. Savvy retailers understand these changing dynamics and the power their physical locations have to drive e-commerce growth and how discovery online can increase traffic back to their stores. After taking stock of the latest omni-channel retailing trends and loyalty program strategies, we’ll challenge our panelists for predictions about what customer experience, brand engagement and loyalty may look like for retailers in the not-so-distant future.

The New Norm: eCommerce Shopping

40% of global internet users, or more than 1 billion people, have bought products or goods online and the internet contributes to more than $2.2 trillion in annual retail sales. And, with an estimated 4.77 billion mobile users worldwide in 2017, it’s no surprise that mobile commerce is expected to grow 2.58 times faster than total eCommerce sales. Even in store shopping is affected by mobile with 82% of smartphone users saying they consult their phone during shopping in a physical location. Shoppers now expect seamless inventory visibility and synchronized customer support both in-store and online, as they increasingly engage with retailers via mobile, both in-store and on the path to purchase.

This panel weighs in on evolving consumer habits, the new opportunities and challenges afforded by the mass shift to eCommerce and mobile shopping, and the technologies enabling retailers to keep pace.

Sensory Stimulation and the Future of Brand Experience

While many marketers are embracing new digital tools and emerging media to reach their consumers, there’s simply no replacement for the “IRL” experience, that is, contextually connecting with real people in the real world and allowing your customers to touch, smell, see, hear, and taste your brand. Hear from some of today’s top experiential marketers and learn how they’ve translated their brands and products into unique, memorable experiences that stimulate the senses, and how they leverage new technologies to take those experiences to the next level.

Keynote – The Future of AI in Consumer Experiences

Take an inside look into the cutting-edge technologies and startups shaping the Future of Artificial Intelligence in Consumer Experience. Though artificial intelligence (AI) has been a research focus for over fifty years, only in the last decade has it become popular for enterprise and consumer use. Falling costs for back-end technologies and capital investments from major brands has allowed for AI to prove itself successful in a variety of use cases — and the efficiency and accuracy of the technology continues to garner attention from researchers and business leaders alike. To better understand developments in the AI space, we interviewed over 50 successful entrepreneurs, executives and academics leading the charge on new technologies and applications. We developed 5 bold projections that showcase how AI will impact the consumer experience in coming years.
