In 2020, the consumer has more power than ever before and is driving retail industry innovations within brands, shopping centers, and logistics partners amongst other stakeholders.

With consumer preferences constantly shifting, retailers are tailoring their strategies, from what goes into their physical stores to their online experience, to stay successful as the landscape changes. The 2020 Evolve Conference, “The Changing Consumer,” will bring together retail industry professionals, disruptors, entrepreneurs and academics for a daylong discussion about the role that shifting consumer preferences plays in retailer strategy, a look at what it means to be successful in retail today, and what success will mean in the future.
