Thanks for joining us at Nexpo
What a week!
On Wednesday 21st September, we unveiled Nexpo, the retail technology pop-up store, in partnership with our customer Karen Millen. For three days only, major retail names were taken on customer journeys of the next retailing generation, facilitated by technologies that are affordable, easily deployable, and available to integrate now into your existing store estate.
From installing each partners’ technology, to carrying out the full shop fit as a Karen Millen store, (and of course, coordinating everything leading up to the week of the event!), Nexpo was project managed end-to-end by Retail Assist’s Head of Project Services, and Head of Marketing.
And once the pop-up was fully fitted out, we welcomed over 100 retailers, and retail trade journalists and bloggers, over the 3 days. Here are some photos taken on the tours.
Retailers also enjoyed post event networking, with the opportunity to speak with each of the technology partners about their products and services, as well as share thoughts about the future of the in-store customer experience. The physical store is a touchpoint for 89% of consumers in the buying process, and so it is more important than ever to ensure technological innovation plays a part in enhancing the in-store customer journey.
Nexpo shows how retailers can use technology to make the customer journey more convenient through smarter fulfilment and payments like Endless Aisle (Adyen), more interactive through RFID projecting digital information, or generating more opportunities to upsell through fitting room applications like SeeWall (InovRetail).
For facilitating a single view of stock, and easier inventory management on the shop floor, Retail Assist’s Tablet Inventory was also showcased at the event, currently in use by Karen Millen as part of the Merret omnichannel supply chain solution.
