The 9th edition of Retail Arena brings, once again, two days of discussions about changes in the industry and the future of the field. Influenced by the online commerce landscape and the rapid digitization during the recent months, but also by the free spaces on the market, ready for the expansion of large companies, many businesses are rapidly adopting new services and technologies.
On the first day of the event we look at the changes in retail in the last year and a half, how business strategies have changed and what the economic future in Romania looks like.
On the second day of the conference we discover how the digitization processes has accelerated and what the steps for online migration were, to save or improve the business.
The event will take place live with an audience and online on IC Events, the virtual events platform. Networking & Expo Area included in both setups.
We’ll talk about who won and who lost. How business has evolved during the pandemic, what has changed and how business plans have been influenced?
How have commercial and logistics spaces expanded in the last year and how has the market for interior and exterior redevelopment evolved, as well as the business of DIY retailers? What programs they brought to light and how they attracted customers.
Investing in sustainability, despite an uncertain business climate. We’ll talk about investing in campaigns for the environment and for the local community. What are the benefits of sustainable measures taken by retailers and how do these costs influence the purchasing decision of the consumer.
What are the chances of an offline retailer surviving in 2021 without an online presence? What is online investment, what are the advantages and how much does it represent in a business?
Who changed their investment plan and redirected budgets to online - what were the gains and losses? What were the life-saving solutions for retailers, when and how were they implemented?
The pandemic created a dependency on suppliers and showed the importance of carriers for the final consumer. What are the other impediments for the industry and what happens when the authorities delay the important projects for the development of the country? How much ground is left for logistics spaces and what are the main poles of attraction and development in the country?
