How to Survive in an Amazon World

Retail Sessions Tue, Jun 26 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Islander Ballroom C

There is no way around it—the past year has been rough for retail. Itʼs about a little company in Seattle called Amazon, which is steadily eating the world of retail. And when I say eating, I mean in one bite.
What does the future hold for retailers large and small? The tea leaves point to three major developments.
• Changing demographics are a key driver here
• Enhanced retail experiences and the journey
• Understanding, and designing to support the customersʼ behavior
What do you do when facing a vastly stronger competitor? You team up. Alliances grow among business that are like-minded, but not competitive.
Whatʼs next — retailers will need to continue to adapt their playbooks, because Amazon
and the changes it has created are here to stay.
