    Seismic Change: Fortifying Australian Retail on the World Stage

    Economic, social and political forces are colliding to provoke change in Australian retail. Consumers are shackled by weak household income growth, global price transparency is undermining traditional business models, and the onslaught of international market entrants shows no signs of slowing. Low wage growth, high household debt, and declining consumer sentiment – how are retailers adapting their consumer value proposition to the current economic climate? What regulatory stance can the Federal Government take to support Australian retailers? And how can retailers position themselves to account for political volatility?

    The Age of Personalisation: Crafting a Finer Edge

    As the digital age offers up new ways to fight for customer mindshare and market share, leading retailers globally are responding with new efforts to personalise the customer experience—and reaping big rewards in the process. To stay ahead of the curve, retailers must continue to evolve their personalisation strategies to better cater to the wants and needs of their customers. From product offerings to in-person experiences, mobile apps, and beyond, how can Australian retailers identify in which areas personalisation delivers the highest ROI?  And what data sources, technologies, and organisational changes are needed to successfully execute personalisation in these areas?

    Out of Time: The Relentless Pace of Retail Planning

    Retail planning has a new-found velocity. Tasked with maintaining relevance in the era of instant fulfilment, retailers have an ever-diminishing window to convert consumer interest into profit. How are retailers reengineering the supply chain to support reigned-in strategic timelines? From blockchain remodelling to the Internet of Things, how are retailers accounting for experimental and consequential technological advancements? And how are real-time customer experience insights being channelled into responsive, dynamic strategies? How can retailers accelerate their journey to becoming an Intelligent Enterprise?

    MARKETING STREAM chaired by John Batistich
    Marketing Renaissance: Reclaiming the Art of the Approach

    Marketers hold dominion over consumer touchpoints. With a near omniscient view of the customer journey, the art of engagement has become masterful. As the barriers to hyper-personalisation rescind, how are marketers striking a balance between persuasive and over-intrusive product offerings? How are metrics advancing to measure previous intangibles in marketing? And how are marketers reframing their approach to audience segmentation? Conversational home interfaces are shrinking the space brands have to operate in, so how are marketers responding? In what ways are marketers identifying and exploiting new sources of influence close to the consumer?

    TECH & DATA STREAM chaired by Jonathan Reeve
    Learning from the Machine: The Gears of Retail Overdrive

    The case for advanced analytics is made often, but rarely overstated. Consumer touchpoints are exploding across the retail landscape, and to absorb the blast retailers must harmonise disparate data sources and drive frontline differentiation. What are the business impediments to fully pursuing advanced analytics in retail and how can they be overcome? How are retailers deploying artificial intelligence to absorb rapid consumer driven change? And what technologies, with data at the core, are prime for experimentation in retail? How are retailers responding to amplified consumer calls for data controls?

    PEOPLE STREAM chaired by Karen Matthews
    People at the Core: Fuelling the Heart of Retail

    Any revolution in retail will be borne by the frontline. While technology threatens fundamentals across the entire value chain, retailers that are able to garner reciprocal respect between informed consumers and dedicated, knowledgeable staff are set for success in any retail reality.  How are brands feeding an aspirational culture throughout the business hierarchy? And how are retailers converting frontline staff into genuine brand ambassadors? From accessing data assets to clear career track visibility, how much control should be vested in frontline staff?

    Power in Balance: Reflecting the Complexity of Consumers

    The convergence of consumer driven technologies has yielded an arsenal of data for retailers to wield. But retailers are not disproportionately empowered; the industry standard has lifted, consumer expectations will not be tempered, and disruptions to user-flow are no longer tolerated. How are retailers resonating with the complex desires, motivations and attitudes held by different consumer demographics? And how are retailers quantifying and consolidating consumer touchpoints to enrich customer profiles? When confronted by experimental or immature technology, how are retailers uncloaking false promises and delivering real value to consumers and the business?

    Opportunities in the Fog: Casting a Light on Retail Expansion

    Consumers traverse industry lines without flinching, and now retailers are following. Retailers are breaking out of their traditional habitats and tracking consumers through their own diverse ecosystems, seeking avenues for expansion and securing new opportunities for revenue generation. How are partnerships reshaping the local retail landscape? Given immense competitive pressure on the local market, do Australian retailers have the resources to pursue global initiatives? How should retailers respond to the fragmentation of payment technology? From hungering for scale to refining core activities, how are Australian retailers identifying and accelerating their market advantage?

    Miracle or Mirage? Demystifying the Retail Horizon

    Retail needs profits not prophets. Inundated with technological choice and tasked with discerning returns from rhetoric, leaders are scanning for advantage while keeping one eye trained on the bottom line. From augmented reality to facial recognition software, how are retailers discerning realistic applications for hype-cycle technologies? What current solutions are undervalued on the retail circuit? And how are retailers forecasting the profitability of technological investments? Are accountability mechanisms for AI informed decision making adequate? How are world-leading retailers structured to absorb rapid, unexpected change?

    LOYALTY STREAM chaired by Jonathan Reeve
    Allied for Advantage: Reclaiming Loyalty in the World of Choice

    Loyalty can turn the tide in the war for market share, and a deep knowledge of consumer motivations is critical for outflanking competitors. But securing consumer allegiances in a world of near limitless choice is a daunting proposition. How are retailers unleashing the creative power of consumers to forge authentic brand connections? Where has personalisation revealed greater opportunities for influence across the customer journey? How are traditional loyalty programs evolving to reflect the individual dynamism of consumers? And how are brands partnering to create collaborative, responsive rewards systems?

    The Physical Edge: Recasting Brick and Mortar Stores

    The retail loop is closing. Committed to the pursuit of seamless experiences, the physical site is being reimagined as a destination – an ecosystem where consumers can thrive, plugged in and empowered. How are retailers re-engineering the shop floor to recreate consumer ecosystems and lift credibility? From heat mapping to geo-tracking, how are retailers throttling productivity out of every square inch of floor space? A home of expertise, a centre for aftermarket support, and a site for hosting experiences – how are brick-and-mortar stores accommodating customers at different stages of their journey?

    PRODUCT STREAM chaired by Karen Matthews
    Pressure on Products: Colliding with Customisation

    Consumers approach products as an extension of themselves. Traditional purchase motivators persist in an elevated state, while personalisation demands require a retailers full logistical attention. Do retailers need to overhaul long-standing distribution pathways to place the product in closer proximity to the purchaser? And how is merchandising strategy adapting to the established reality of product customisation? How are retailers accounting for mass discounting events in their pricing strategy? How are retailers approaching dialogue through design to engage consumers from concept to launch? From holographic displays to immersive AR experiences, how are retailers creating a sense of ownership and changing consumer perspectives of products?
