Future Stores

Future Stores, taking place 24 -25 May at the London Victoria Park Plaza, is THE event for in-store experience innovators. It is a unique peer-to-peer learning opportunity for Heads of Omni-channel, Customer Experience, Operations, eCommerce and Digital, who are rethinking their omni-channel strategies to drive sales in the physical store.

The recent phenomenon of show rooming (literally using a store as a showroom/comparison shopping environment instead of getting customers to purchase), store closings and the growth in digital channels have greatly impacted brick and mortar sales. Brick and mortar retailers are at a pivotal point in time. The goal of a store (whether pop up or permanent) is simple: to convert customers.

How can retailers make the in-store purchase process as easy as it is online, to ensure that stores are hitting not only traffic numbers, but conversion numbers? As a result, WBR created a brand new conference focused on the pain points of retailers.

The Future Stores conference provides tactical strategies for retailers (with brick and mortar stores) to improve and increase conversion rates in-store, as well as make the store and cross-channel shopping experience as seamless and easy as it is online.
