DX3 is Canada’s largest conference and trade show dedicated to retail, marketing and technology. After 11 highly successive years of events in Canada, DX3 and Web3Toronto are hosting the very first DX3 USA Retail, Marketing & Technology Summit in a virtual format on October 3-4, 2022. The one-of-a-kind event will focus on the relationship between marketing and technology to drive the success of retail businesses.
The retail sector is undergoing a once-in-a-century transformation driven by the rising demand for tailored consumer experiences. As North America’s leading retail, marketing and tech event, DX3 offers a unique opportunity to attendees in the United States of America and beyond to unlock additional learning avenues, explore innovative strategies and discover the latest tools at the intersection of these three key areas.
Post the pandemic, and following the seismic shift in consumer expectations, the evolution of the global retail sector has altered in a most unanticipated manner, resulting in fresh challenges and opportunities. No longer is retail strategy purely a function of the old adage, ‘location, location, location’, but it is instead tightly enmeshed with modern technological innovation. As a result, every aspect of the consumer chain, such as production, warehousing, distribution, payments, customer service and merchandising, is poised to be reinvented to drive growth, efficiency and transformation in the twenty-first century.
The two-day event will focus on several key themes, including future trends in retail, the most promising sub-sectors, the changing role of marketing in building customer loyalty and consumer engagement, cultivating and optimizing a brand image, emerging technologies, the latest analytical methodologies and tools, and logistical challenges.
The DX3 Retail Summit will focus on strategies deployed by top-tier retailers to succeed in today’s rapidly changing environment and how they have adapted their approach to maximize reach and profitability. Attendees can engage with key speakers in various formats, including keynotes, fireside chats, panel discussions and innovation showcases.
The insights-packed agenda will include a keynote by Paul Misener, VP, Global Innovation Policy and Communications at Amazon; ‘Inside INDOCHINO’s Omnichannel Growth Roadmap’ presented by Drew Green, CEO, President and Director at INDOCHINO; and ‘Retail Global Growth Insights’ delivered by Jose Nino, VP, Global e-Commerce and Digital Strategy, U.S. Polo Assn among others. Panel Discussions will delve deeply into a variety of themes such as ‘The ‘Phygital’ World: Reinventing The In-Store Experience,’ ‘Executive Excellence: Lessons from CEOs,’ ‘Retail and the Metaverse,’ and ‘Optimizing Growth in an Omnichannel Era.’
Sessions by senior leadership at DX3’s elite partners at the DX3 Marketing and Innovation Summit will share their perspectives on the processes utilized by top marketers to cut through the noise and identify meaningful trends with a view to building highly successful brands and generating real impact through carefully designed campaigns.
Among a roster of distinguished speakers and seasoned professionals, marquee names will include Robin Kovtiz, CEO, Baskitz; Mark Spencer, SVP, Commercial Operations, Jane; and Phillip Haid, Founder and CEO, Public Inc.
