RetailDetail People Congress 2019

People make the difference in retail, and that’s all the more true in the digital age. That’s why RetailDetail & People On Point are organising their first People Congress. Business leaders will be sharing their experiences and their knowledge about the impact of their employees on the company. The future of leadership and new leadership structures will be discussed as well as the future of store employees and how their commitment influences the customer’s experience. This congress will show that there is more to HR than happiness and mindfulness: human capital today has an effective impact on business results.

RetailDetail Trade & Shopper Marketing Congress 2019

How do you turn shoppers into buyers? Effective trade & shopper marketing is based on thorough knowledge of the shopper and the retailer, the development of well-founded strategies and complete plans and last but not least: an excellent execution of those plans. After all, the shopper makes his final decision at the moment of purchase. In collaboration with expert Luc Desmedt (LD&Co), RetailDetail will explore what makes trade and shopper marketeers tick. Retailers and manufacturers will be presenting their views on the field.
