“Retail is facing the greatest period of disruption in living memory”

World’s biggest retailers to take on the digital evolution and ailing high street at Retail Week Live 2020.

Senior business leaders from the world’s biggest retailers will be tackling the issues contributing to unprecedented challenges in retail following the worst year on record for the industry in 2019.

Dave Lewis (ceo, Tesco), Peter Jelkeby (country retail manager UK & Ireland, Ikea), Richard Walker (md, Iceland Foods) and Beth Horn (head of industry for retail, Facebook) will be among 200+ influential figures speaking at Retail Week Live 2020, which is taking place on March 25-26 at The Intercontinental London.

The digital evolution, sustainability, the declining high street and how to win business from the increasingly conscious consumer will be addressed in a packed programme at the event.

The two-day conference provides delegates with ideas, insights and the tools required to lead through the digital transformation in a series of strategic sessions, workshops and seminars.

The opening keynote will come from Iceland’s Richard Walker, who will speak about ‘democratising environmentalism and business as a catalyst for a step change in sustainability’.

This year’s theme – Retail Evolved: Thriving in a Digital World – will see a number of leaders from global brands taking to the stage. As well as those already mentioned, these will include Amazon, The Body Shop, Starbucks, McDonald’s, Primark, Boots, Green & Blacks, Sweaty Betty, Sainsbury’s, Crosstown Doughnuts, LEGO, Hema and Pets at Home among others.

“Retail is facing the greatest period of disruption in living memory,” said Hannah Tovey, programme director of Retail Week Live. “Retail and commerce businesses know that they cannot keep up with the pace of change alone. Building an ecosystem that will fuel growth has become critical to success and this is where the new Retail Week Live comes in.”
