More than 100 speakers from around the world, including leaders from Walgreens Boots Alliance, Adidas, Levi’s, Shopify and Asda, will take to the virtual stage at our new digital event in April.

Retail Connected, organised by World Retail Congress, Retail Week, Retail Week Live and Be Inspired, will bring challenging ideas, invaluable insight, inspiration and a future vision that will help you and your business emerge stronger from the coronavirus crisis. 

The sector has been reshaped and reset by the events of 2020 but so have consumers. It is critical that retailers learn vital lessons from the events of the past year in order to instil the focus, strategy and dynamic organisation that the new consumer landscape will demand of them in 2021 and beyond. 

Retail Connected has been created to help all retailers around the world to seize those opportunities, and understand and embrace the realities of accelerated change. 

It will connect retailers from all corners of the globe, from all sectors and from leadership teams to frontline employees.

The five-day, live-streamed event will take place from Monday, April 26 until Friday, April 30, and registration is free.
