Dx3 Canada, Canada’s only expo dedicated to digital marketing, digital advertising and digital retailing has announced that Doug Stephens, Founder, Retail Prophet Consulting & Candice Faktor, President, Shopcatch and VP, Strategy and New Ventures, Torstar Digital will be delivering a keynote presentation on the second day of the expo.
The presentation will be entitled “The Future of Retail” and will examine what is in-store for Canadian Retailers in 2012 and beyond. The presentation will take place at 8.30am, next Thursday (January 26th) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. 700 Level: Room 701B; Hall E.
“I’m looking forward to Dx3 because I feel we’re at a historic and wildly exhilarating point in the evolution of retail. I’m anticipating more change in retail in the next 5 years than we’ve seen in the previous 500. The only way for retailers to cope with these changes is to be the one causing them to happen” said Doug Stevens, Founder Retail Prophet Consulting.
“2012 is the year mobile shopping is going mainstream as smartphone users become the norm and use their devices to shop smarter. Retailers must take advantage of the game-changing shift in consumer behaviour to be relevant. There is a massive opportunity for retailers to harness the power of mobile to drive people in store, increase basket size and drive customer loyalty. Hopefully our session at Dx3, will enable Canadian retailers to overcome some of the challenges that they are facing in the digital arena” said Candice Faktor, Candice Faktor, President, Shopcatch and VP, Strategy and New Ventures, Torstar Digital.
