Retail and the way forward

For years, the retail industry has been under immense pressure to innovate with the underlying challenges and opportunities provided by e-commerce solutions and platforms. The coronavirus outbreak supercharged these changes, leaving an industry open to redesign. But how are high street retailers unlocking the potential of e-commerce and changing the way they work? How are e-commerce providers seizing their day of reckoning, and what does this mean to the actual high street? Hear from experts and retailers from both sides of North Sea, on the retail industry and the way forward.
