Webinar: Inflationary Pressures Herald an Uncertain Future for Retail

Watch Webinar On-demand

When we began to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, there was hope that things would return to normality, or something close to what we would recognise as normal. But, just as that was happening, the economy was hit with rising inflation, increasing costs, food insecurity, energy price rises and, sadly, a war in Ukraine. These all combine to make for a pretty uncertain future for retailers - and their customers. And with no end in sight, finding ways to mitigate these challenges has become the number-one priority for retailers across every sector of the industry.

Watch this webinar and hear from Andrew Busby, a top 50 retail influencer at Software AG, and Miya Knights, Owner & Publisher of Retail Technology News, for a discussion to hear how your peers are tackling these unprecedented challenges. This program covers:

  • Managing rising costs
  • Creating a stronger supply chain
  • Anticipating new consumer behaviour
