Main Conference Day Two

12:00 PM Disruption And Innovation Keynote Panel: Disruption And Innovation In 2015

Jeffery Sears was named one of 25 people shaping retail’s future, a major disruptor in the industry who is doing amazing things with his company, Pirch. Since launching PIRCH four years ago, he’s made the bricks-and-mortar environment more relevant than ever – a huge accomplishment considering shifts to online. Buying a custom suit online was an entirely new concept when Indochino launched in 2007, but the company has experienced rapid growth since then, and is now opening brick and mortar locations. Alex Ani has been working one of the most innovative projects in retail, and will present it at eTail East 2015. See how disruption and innovation are changing what retail looks like both today, and in the future.

• Look at disruption and innovation, and what they’ve meant to your business (traditional disruption v. non-traditional disruption)
• Balance innovation with day-to-day operating needs
• Use data in new ways to drive growth for your company
• Looking at future growth opportunities (new customer segments, channels, etc)
