EuroShop 2023 will host a collection of lectures across its Retail Technology and Connected Retail stages – two of eleven stages at the event – to provide guests with an insight into IT trends and solutions for the retail sector.
The Retail Technology Stage will cover a variety of topics including digitisation and checkout solutions. Frank Heinrich, CEO of Pentland Firth Software, will lead a lecture titled ‘SMART CART Project Doomed to Fail? - There’s a better way’, while James Frank, innovations consultant at Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, will host a session called ‘Value Added Friction: A New Way to Look at Loss Prevention at Self-Checkout'.
Other lectures include ‘End-to-End Digitalisation in Claim Management’; ‘RFID as a Key Driver for the Evolution of Fashion Retail’; and ‘The Future of Facilities Navigating through Sustainability Objectives and the Energy Crisis with Rich Asset Data and Automation’.
The Connected Retail Stage will focus on other themes, with particular focus on the key challenges associated with the changing behaviours of shoppers.
Peter Hanko, head of sales at Ydistri, and Tomas Pimpara, head of logistics at Rossmann Czech Republic, will jointly host a session titled ‘Rethinking Unsold Merchandise? Get Inventory Back in the Game’.
The stage will also address more recent innovations such as virtual reality. Jacob Tveraabak of StrongPoint and Niklas Zeitlin of Coop Sweden will discuss immersive commerce and the metaverse, while others explore radio-frequency identification in the supply chain and the use of digital twins.
EuroShop 2023 will take place from 26 February to 2 March in Düsseldorf, Germany.
