Economic experts and sociologists agree that our society is heading to a turning point. Under the impact of the covid epidemic, the energy crisis, the war in Ukraine and the disruption of global supply chains, the production and consumer prices are climbing to their maximum values in several decades.
We can expect a radical step change in the purchasing behaviour of consumers. Not only in terms of savings and consumption reduction, but in general - in a new setting of value perception of products and services. It will not be "just" a question of overcoming another crisis, we will go through a process of overall economic transformation.
The keynote speaker for 2023 is Peter Hinssen. A serial entrepreneur, advisor, keynote speaker and author, Peter is one of the most sought-after thought leaders on radical innovation, leadership and the impact of all digital on society and business.
In 2022, over one thousand attendees and more than 50 commercial partners participated at the Retail Summit. Now it's your turn!I want to register for the best price
