PSFK presents the Future of Retail 2042 Conference @RIW22

Description

On the morning of January 18 2022, the PSFK and Retail Innovation Week communities will gather virtually for discuss the themes of PSFK’s highly anticipated annual Future of Retail report, the latest annual in a series of popular reports published by PSFK since 2010.

Through 3 panel discussions plus a special PSFK presentation, experts will dissect an optimistic view of a far-future shopping experience while pinpointing current trends and ideas that act as weak signals for the future.

The theme of the Future of Retail 2042 will be:

An exploration of what retail will look like in 20 years time

A discussion about innovation today that will act as a foundation to the future vision

1. PSFK presentation of the Future of Retail

A quick lecture on the themes of PSFK’s highly anticipated annual Future of Retail report, the latest annual in a series of popular reports published by PSFK since 2010.

2. The Meta-Mall

By 2042 the worlds of social media and gaming have merged and reached a mainstream audience. Going online to socialize and shop comes close to replicating the feeling of meeting up with friends or walking into a store. Digital goods have real value on their own and many have twins in the physical world.

3. The Omni-Consumer

In 2042 every consumer is the CEO and creative director of their own brand. They will reach audiences through social media to market and sell – on behalf of other brands, through resale and secondhand and products of their own design. They will also tap into digital platforms to gain access to operational resources like capital, suppliers and bespoke production.

4. The On-Demand Brand

By 2042 companies will fully integrate themselves into the lives of their customers and realize the potential of any time and anywhere availability. Real-time insight into purchasing behaviors on an individual, neighborhood and city level and access to local production facilities will ensure popular items are always in stock where they’re needed.

PSFK and Retail Innovation Week will continue to deliver on their best-in-class virtual format on the Hopin platform. Guests will be treated to a rich, two hour conversation between research think tank PSFK and a curated selection of luminary business leaders.
