Commerce Channels and the Digital Landscape:

One of the focal points of discussion was the ever-expanding range of commerce channels. With the rise of eCommerce, social commerce, and voice commerce, the panel explored the challenges and opportunities that businesses face in navigating this complex digital landscape. The insights shared during these discussions shed light on emerging trends and strategies to stay ahead in the competitive market.

The experts delved into the potential of AI and AR in enhancing the online and offline shopping journey, offering a glimpse into the transformative power of these technologies in shaping the future of retail.

Headless/Composable/MACH Architectures:

The technological infrastructure that underpins modern commerce was also a key point of discussion. Participants explored the benefits and challenges of headless, composable, and MACH architectures. These conversations provided valuable insights into how businesses can leverage these frameworks to enhance flexibility, scalability, and innovation.

Profit vs. Revenue:

The perennial question of prioritising profit or revenue sparked lively debates among the attendees. With differing perspectives on short-term gains versus long-term sustainability, participants gained valuable insights into striking the right balance for their businesses in an ever-changing market.

The Future of Retail and High Street:

As the retail landscape undergoes transformation, discussions turned toward the future of high street and brick-and-mortar stores. Insightful conversations revolved around the evolving role of physical retail spaces, the integration of digital technologies, and strategies for creating seamless omnichannel experiences.
