In this new series in association with SAP we will be introducing our audience to different industries that has been directly or indirectly affected by the pandemic, where the leaders from each industry shares knowledge and experience to help the one's who are still struggling to establish their brand.

In the first session of the series we will be addressing "The future of retail: The role of New-age Tech"

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact most industries at an unprecedented scale globally, including retail that has witnessed significant disruption over the past few months. Retailers in the country at this point are not looking to make profits, but are rather looking for a way to stay afloat and provide all the support that they can to their employees and other stakeholders to continue business as usual. This pandemic has forced the retailer to view this as an opportunity to think in a more "phygital", physical yet digital, in order to adjust their existing processes to the "new normal".

At this session our speakers for the session will be touching base on the following areas of Retail:

1. The Contact-less Retail: Now, Next and Beyond
2. Fast-forwarding tech in Retail
3. Augmenting the Customer Experience for the Stay-at-home Shoppers.
