John also featured in the closing panel, discussing “The Big Debate: should you set up your own direct to shopper site and if so how do you do it?”
A busy conference full of fascinating insights from world-leading retail and digital experts. The modern conference room had one of the only surviving sections of the 1600 year old Roman wall of Londinium running through it, creating a juxtaposed setting to discuss the future of retail; perhaps serving as a metaphor for the connection of the old and traditional retail marketplace with the exciting future of the online world.
