|Produced in Conjunction with the First Annual Social Mobile Convergence Forum
October 3 - 5, 2012 | Westin | San Antonio, TX
RIS is proud to host the sixth annual Cross-Channel Retail Executive Summit, which will be held October 3 - 5, 2012 at the Westin in San Antonio, Texas. This premier executive resort - available to Summit attendees at a very special conference rate - will enable you to give full focus to an agenda filled with sessions on strategic business and technology imperatives critical to your company as you operate and compete in a multi-channel marketplace.
As Mobile & Social are consuming an ever-increasing amount of shoppers’ attention RIS believes these channels require dedicated content for the industry to stay abreast of this rapidly changing space. Therefore, the Social Mobile Convergence Forum will be produced in conjunction with the Cross Channel Retail Executive Summit to ensure maximum value for attendees.
At this 2012 invitation-only Event, you will enjoy a wealth of opportunities for effective peer-to-peer networking, the exchanging of information and ideas and the building of lasting business and personal relationships.
Who should attend?
Senior-level retail, e-commerce, customer and store experience, marketing, IT, and merchandising executives who realize the value of providing a consistent cross channel experience and who are looking for strategies to adapt their organizations to meet the needs of a new breed of customer.
What's different about this event?
Both the Cross Channel Retail Executive Summit and the Mobile Social Convergence Forum will provide strategic insight into and actionable information into key strategies for succeeding in today’s retail environment, including:
• The business and IT processes that must be addressed to truly achieve a seamless cross-channel experience.
• The tactics necessary to ensure inventory visibility across channels
• Mobile applications that will provide the most immediate return on investment and customer satisfaction
• Mining Social Media data to gain prescriptive knowledge into consumer behavior that can drive decisions across the enterprise
In addition, this is an intimate conference, not a hectic convention. You will be able to talk to all speakers before and after sessions as well as during networking breaks and meals. You will be able to meet and engage with virtually any attendee, exchanging ideas and forming relationships that will become even more valuable as your business considers new opportunities and confronts new challenges.
What new information will the 2012 Summit provide?
You'll be the first to hear analysis and takeaways from the exclusive 2012 RIS/AMR Cross-Channel Retail Trends Study - including how retailers are investing their current and future dollars on cross-channel initiatives and where they are leveraging cross-channel retailing to become more intimate with their customers and better understand their buying preferences, patterns and lifetime value.
You'll gain insight into leading-edge strategies for competing and succeeding in the latest consumer-driven channels such as Mobile and Social Media. And you'll learn how to tear down walls between your retail channels, see online shopping through a customer's eyes and leverage customer insights to deliver the most value to your company.
