About this event


Why people prefer online shopping and why 92% of retail purchases still happen offline? Also why is Amazon and other eCommerce giants investing in brick and mortar?

Join us to discuss the future of retail…. In the last couple of years, there has been a lot of talk about e-commerce vs. physical retail and how that affects retailers. During the lockdowns consumers didn’t really have the means to go to a shopping mall, so they turned online. But what happens now, that the shopping centres are open? What is the future of physical retail and shopping?

Consumers are changing, and so are their shopping habits. Tune in with:

Zoran Nasteski - CEO and Co-Founder of Qpick

Klime Mickovski - head of digital and data at Abu Dhabi DCT

Valerie Chua - Founder Of Swallows Connections

Philip Choy - Marketing Director at Eurus Asia, Hong Kong

Bogdan Stefan - Tech and Innovation Advisor and CTO at InnovX-BCR
