RBTE 2016: Omnichannel and the Store Experience Still Top Priorities for Retailers

Posted by admin on Mar 17, 2016 11:27:31 AM

The Displaydata team recently returned from another successful Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE) in London – known as Europe’s “must visit” event for those in the retail, hospitality, travel, entertainment and leisure industries. This year, more than 16,000 attendees heard nearly 200 speakers, getting up to date with all the latest solutions and learning first-hand from the best and brightest organizations around the globe how technology solutions have increased productivity, reduced costs, attracted more customers and improved the customer experience.  

As we heard from our colleagues at this year’s National Retail Federation show in New York, the themes of omnichannel, innovation and inspiration, and pricing strategies also bubbled up to the top as key discussion points over the two days of the RBTE Expo. The pace of change in the industry is very clear, and retailers need to be ready to change with it and embrace the “new normal.” Below are summaries of some of the conversations we had at the show and general insights shared from this year’s line-up of speakers:

Convenience Stores: Your One Stop Shop for Food, Gas and ESLs

Posted by admin on Feb 23, 2016 8:00:11 AM

Traditionally, the convenience store has primarily served as quick stop for gas on the way to work or on a road trip. In recent years, however, a number of convenience stores, from the small mom-and-pop shop to the mega travel centers, have added a number of merchandise offerings, including grab-and-go food, adult beverages, toiletries and even yard-art.   Today’s consumers are taking advantage of these offerings as they’re stretched for time as they run between work, children’s activities, networking commitments and home.
