As direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands continue to enter physical spaces, we’ve heard plenty about the growing pains these retailers experience by stepping into a new space. However, these stores have a powerful advantage over traditional physical retailers: their nascency in the physical space. Brands that are new to brick & mortar have the unique opportunity to build their stores from the ground up with today’s best technology.
Just weeks after NRF's Big Show, Displaydata will be on the road at another of the world's biggest retail tradeshows - EuroShop 2020. Thousands will descend upon Düsseldorf, Germany on February 16 - 20, to see future-oriented and dynamic retail tech providers showcase the next era of retail. We're excited to be right in the middle of it all on stand A76 in hall 6 with our partner Delfi Technologies.
CES 2020 is the world's largest and one of the most influential tech events, where the entire technology ecosystem gathers to conduct business, launch products, build brands and partner to solve some of the world's most challenging issues. More than 170,000 attendees will visit to see the latest technology; encompassing 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, electronic shelf labels, smart cities and resilience, sports, robotics and more.
NRF's Big Show is just around the corner. NRF is a great opportunity to speak with and learn from leaders at the biggest event in the industry. With a plethora of exciting programming, it can be difficult to decide which sessions to attend.
As brick and mortar retail face growing challenges, retailers must find innovative solutions to today’s problems. According to our research study with Planet Retail, 67% of shoppers think technology improves the store experience, 33% want offers sent to their mobile devices and 65% said they welcome agile pricing, where prices are subject to change throughout the day. As this research and recent McKinsey and Company reports suggest, electronic shelf labels (ESLs) could be the solution to today’s obstacles.
The year is coming to an end, and that can only mean one thing – the entire retail technology vendor community has already set its sights on NRF 2020, or the BIG Show. This year’s show has a stellar line-up of speakers including the CEO of Microsoft, as well as keynotes from the CEO of Crate and Barrel, the CIO of Lowe’s and the Chief People Officer of Sephora, just to name a few.
Sie kennen das auch, oder? Sie wissen schon, diese Messegelände irgendwo in der Nähe eines Flughafens oder in einem abgelegenen Gewerbegebiet, die kaum die Flugmeilen wert sind. Glücklicherweise ist die NRF anders. Die Messe, die von den Veranstaltern als „Big Show“ bezeichnet wird, ist nicht nur das Event zum Netzwerken und Austauschen von Gedanken zur Zukunft des Einzelhandels. Das Javits Convention Center ist zudem hervorragend gelegen: mitten im Herz von Manhattan.
We’ve all been there haven’t we? You know, those trade show venues that are stuck out near an airport or industrial centre miles away from anywhere. The kind of place that’s not really worth the air miles. Thankfully, NRF isn’t such a venue. Indeed, the self-styled ‘Big Show’ is not only the event to network and exchange ideas on the future of retail, the Javits Convention Centre has a brilliant location close to Manhattan’s beating heart.
