A conversation about innovative strategies, companies and business models that are shaping the future of consumer retail experiences. Companies who functioned in silos are being forced to collaborate with new technologies, increased competition and shorter attention spans, and the results are amazing! With a range of new business platforms from the democratization of fashion to entertaining new merchandising models, the retail sector is experiencing an innovation boom; the old rules are out (ok, most of them) and the results are exciting. Panelists for this event are: Jake Nickell, Founder and CSO, Threadless.
