conneXion 2017 took place in Madrid on April 26-27

Here some highlights from LS Retail’s international conference and expo.

As people can buy all they want quickly and painlessly online, physical locations are increasingly visited not because of the products they store, but because of the experiences they offer. Retailers and restaurateurs worldwide are increasingly faced with the challenge of creating more and more of the exciting and unforgettable experiences that customers crave. As consumers want to be constantly engaged and surprised, technology becomes fundamental in helping retailers and restaurateurs to offer their customers exactly what they need, when they need it.
