2017: Look Ahead - Retail

Our biggest retail conversations this year straddled truly ‘smart’ omni-era brand design, the experiential economy, championing exploration, brands as ‘enablers’ and the value of getting more intimate, inclusive and locally relevant. We even reviewed how to use the most uncomfortable aspects of change – namely an irreversible culture of consumer disloyalty and a resistance to traditional brand formulas – to elicit exciting new opportunities.

In 2017, we’ll continue to track the intersections between consumer culture, retail and emerging technology to keep brands ahead of the curve, alongside our wider network of industry heads, analysts, academics and innovators.
