With technological innovation moving at such a fast rate in this sector, and with online and offline coming together to innovate the shopping experience in so many different ways, it's difficult to know what's going on right now, let alone what the future might hold for retail.
This web chat looks at the technologies, innovations and platforms that will change the way we shop over the next 10 years. We'll take a look at what's happening and working now but also the devices and experiences that are yet to reach mainstream: wearables and virtual reality, for example. What will the shop assistant of the future look like and what will the high street look like?
Ranjiv Dale, Head of Technology at GfK will be contributing to the discussion from 12:30pm on Weds 10th December providing insight into the technologies, behaviours and platforms that will change the way we shop.
Other panel members:
Michael Kliger, vice president, international, eBay Enterprise
Toby Abel, chief technology officer, Befittd
William Ostrom, corporate comms director, B&Q
