Ever since Amazon came on the scene and 'they' said it would never fly, the more traditional retail model has been challenged and has not stopped its evolution.
But it is not just the where we buy, it is the how and where it is produced, the how it gets to us, how those who produce, consult and retail communicate with us and how we now influence the model and process.
The pace of evolution has been electric and there is little sign of slowing down as we begin to routinely recognise references such as fintech, industry 4.0, Internet of Things, sensors, webrooming blockchain, analytics, to name but a few.
New trends need to be understood. Trends to come need to be anticipated.
We welcome Anson Bailey, Head of Consumer & Retail of KPMG ASPAC and Head of Technology of KPMG Hong Kong, whose specialist is in retail, market growth, and technology.
If you are in manufacturing, consulting, marketing, design, technology, communications, servicing, and any type of retail, this opportunity is not to be missed.
