How to create a digital breakthrough in times of disruption? This is the central question posed by the 4th RETAIL SUMMIT – PORT OF THOUGHTS. The theme: Mastering the Art of Digital Breakthrough.

A business model that looks pioneering today may be history tomorrow. An idea that was science fiction yesterday, is already reality today. While the digital revolution may throw doubt on the old, it also opens up unprecedented opportunities – both for established companies and creative new players on the market.

Top speakers from industry, science and trend research will again be providing answers this year. But this year, not only the established big names will be present but new players on the digital stage as well: LEGENDS & REBELS. The event this year is limited to 300 participants. To benefit from all the exciting presentations, you will want to register early, especially if you want a close-up seat for the question-and-answers session.

We look forward to meeting you!
