First pan-European TCG Retail Summit on 7 and 8 May in Berlin

On 7 and 8 May 2014, the first pan-European TCG Retail Summit will take place in Berlin, a spot where retailers can talk to each other about the current state of affairs in the retail sector.

How to deal with Western sales drop?

The Western European sales numbers have not exactly been positive in 2013, with 5 product branches pushed into negative numbers. Only telecommunications (+ 6.6 %) and small household appliances (+ 1.5 %) managed to realize any sales growth. All major parties will be involved at the TCG Retail Summit to share their vision and experiences, while several high-profile speakers like Piers Fawkes (PSFK), Tony Stockil (Javelin Group), Bryan Roberts (Kantar Retail) will also share their experience.

 

The impact of online sales and the influence of technology on the retail world will be important focal points of the summit, while Friedrich Fleischmann (GfK), Gerald Reitmayr (Samsung), Doug Gurr (Amazon) and Lutz Behrendt (Google) will give their view on the sector's problems and how retail should or will evolve in the future.

 

With plenty of influential speakers, the first TCG Retail Summit will try to offer the retail world a wide range of growth options. More information can be found on the site of the European TCG Retail Summit.
