For the next week, Philadelphia will be the center of the digital retail universe as the Shop.org 2015 Digital Summit takes over the City of Brotherly Love. We’re here. And we hope you are too!
Obviously we know coming by to say hi at booth #743 will be in your plans…but what else do you absolutely have to do at this year’s show? Here’s your list:
1. Learn from QVC
You don’t get to be one of the world’s leading e-retailers by accident. Check out the opening keynote by QVC CEO Michael George, along with Forrester’s Sucharita Mulpuru. Learn how the video giant navigated technological change to tackle digital challenges including multi-platform and mobile.
2. Take Your Site to the Doctor
Does your site need some individual attention? Book at 30-minute one-on-one critique with an expert in multi-channel strategy, end-to-end customer experience, site design, and merchandising best practices through “The Doctor Is In.”
Advance Auto Parts’ Heath Bradbury takes the EXPO Stage at 2:30pm Wednesday to give an insider’s view of what he’s learned in his years of becoming a referral marketing expert. Find out how it compares to your other marketing techniques and what the best way is to get started fast, get optimized, and get better customers.
4. Get Your Stitch Fix
Stitch Fix COO Julie Bornstein headlines the “Next-Generation Ideas for a Fast-Changing Industry” keynote session on Wednesday at 3:15 to close out the show. Head over right after Heath’s talk for a mix of TED-style talks and a Q&A panel about how top e-retailers remain relevant when the pace of digital change is so fast.
5. Play Classic Arcade Games
Yup, it’s true: the NRF Clubhouse in the EXPO Hall will feature old-school arcade games along with plenty of places to relax and recharge yourself…and your phone. Will you find me there? Yes. Will you tell my boss? I hope not.
