Singapore Retail Technology and Innovation Summit

Date : 31 March, 2020
Venue : Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel, Singapore


Asia is and will be a major player in the changing retail landscape, Technology is rewriting the face of retail
It is projected that the value of retail sales in Asia Pacific will reach US$11.8 trillion by 2021, representing a tremendous opportunity. Today, e-commerce is just 14.7% of current total retail sales, valued at US$1.3 trillion. However e-commerce is expected to double by 2021 to US$3 trillion and represent 25.4% of total retail sales in Asia-Pacific, making the region one of the largest and fastest growing markets globally. This growth has been influenced by factors such as rising income levels and the social experience of going to the mall as time to spend with family and friends where buying is not the only priority. Outside of China, online retail is just a small percentage of sales in the region (at less than 3% in Southeast Asia). This has prompted businesses to refocus their efforts towards delivering engaging offline experiences to capture a new generation of buyers.

With digital redefining retail, newer business models will rethink the use of technology in creating and capturing new sources of value
Digital influence—the degree to which in-store sales are influenced by digital in the shopping journey—is growing at an intensifying pace. By 2020, research has indicated that almost 100% of all in-store sales will be affected by mobile technology and easy access to digital information. With information at their fingertips, consumers now expect a new type of experience: one that is individual, where commerce is hyper-convenient, and where technology enhances the experience. Digitalization enables Reimagined shopper engagement: omnichannel commerce and segment-of-one marketing; Digitalization based Personalised marketing has become a reality as retailers build a true 360-view of a customer journey that captures all interactions, contexts, and behaviours. New Technologies enables reimagined retail processes: connected warehouses, automated dynamic pricing.
