WHY THE RELEVANCE AGENDA?

Retail is being transformed and reshaped by our High Velocity world. Being good is no longer good enough.

A staggering 76% of global retailers said that they believed their business model needed to fundamentally change.

New business models and rules for success are emerging that are challenging everything and asking fundamental questions about the very role of retailing. At the heart of all this change is the consumer. They will buy from those that have the greatest relevance to them: by understanding their needs and wants and by having a powerful and clear purpose.

The 2020 World Retail Congress will build on its High Velocity Retail theme by focusing on this new “Relevance Agenda”. Being relevant to your consumer, wherever they are in the world, will define your success.
