LSA, the Infopro Digital group’s media brand, has been driving the consumer goods market since 1958! With a circulation of over 20,000 copies, LSA is a leading weekly magazine that has gradually developed a range of information and networking services to help industry players decipher the latest news and improve their overall performance.
Every year, LSA invites them to the 100% RetailTech Conference, an event dedicated to those who want to leverage innovation to shine!
Retail has kept up with the rapid pace of technological innovation
Facial recognition, ultra-intelligent chatbots, holographic screens, connected mirrors, interactive kiosks, phygital… The retail sector has seized the opportunities offered by the frenetic pace of technological innovation to boost the customer experience, optimise production costs and meet the challenges of the supply chain in a dynamic and sometimes uncertain macroeconomic environment.
With 27 financing rounds in the second quarter of 2022 (vs. 26 over the same period in 2021) with a cumulative value of 792 million dollars, French Retail Tech has confirmed its attractiveness and consolidated its European leadership. Over the same period, the largest fundraising round was recorded in France ($500 million by EcoVadis, which offers a comprehensive CSR assessment service via a global SaaS platform).
The pandemic, which has accelerated the sector’s digital transformation, has clearly contributed to the growth of Retail Tech, since it has revealed to consumers the crucial role played by retail in their lifestyles… and also in the economy, insofar as the sector has established itself as France’s leading private employer.
Today, it is supported by a rich and varied ecosystem made up of start-ups, scale-ups, unicorns and historic leaders, bringing together software publishers and food distributors, consultancies and e-tailers, DNVBs and equipment manufacturers around exciting themes such as Product Data, Bulk, Pricing, Phygital, omnichannel and Tech for Good.
As the benchmark media brand for retail professionals, LSA is at the heart of this dynamic, with expert editorial content and a packed programme of themed events, including the 100% RetailTech by LSA Conference!
RetailTech 2023: stimulating collective intelligence and rewarding innovation
Bringing together retail decision-makers and the ecosystem of start-ups and scale-ups to encourage the sharing of experience, collective intelligence and partnerships to tackle the sector’s major challenges. This is the ambitious challenge taken up every year by the 100% RetailTech by LSA Conference. On the programme:
- Expert testimonials to draw inspiration from the best and take away actionable ideas ;
- Round-table discussions on the major challenges facing the industry ;
- Trophies to reward innovation and give visibility to start-ups that are disrupting the sector through customer experience, e-commerce and marketplace solutions, business processes and Data.
The date and venue of the 2023 edition of the 100% RetailTech Conference will be announced at a later date.
