Future of Retail 2023The retail industry has experienced an extremely challenging couple of years since the pandemic and is now facing a period of high inflation, surging energy prices, a cost of living crisis and ongoing geopolitical volatility. Consumers are prioritising price and convenience over brand loyalty, and retailers are having to work harder to meet evolving customer needs and prevent further profit hits. Can retail survive a recession in 2023 and will sustainability remain a priority with many retailers cutting costs? What new technologies are on the horizon to transform omni-channel shopping experiences?  

The FT Future of Retail summit will return in 2023 with uniquely crafted panels, lightning talks and high-level keynote speakers to address the big challenges facing the retail sector. Taking place across one day and in a hybrid format, the event will gather some of the biggest names in the industry. Delegates from retail, investment, tech, procurement and logistics and supply, will discover new approaches and strategies to help win market share, as well as learn tips for working together towards a more resilient, sustainable and technologically driven future for retail.
