Shopping Street of The Future: Retailers Seeking Real-World Profits In The Metaverse

12th October 2022, 12:00 – 13:30 CEST

Will a futuristic digital world transform the retail sector? It is not a secret that the high street has suffered in recent years, having to close stores with the rise of online shopping. As one store closes, another opportunity opens, and digital shopping is creating many pathways to success. Instead of having stores in every city, perhaps it is not a crazy concept that retailers might build global hubs to serve millions of customers in the metaverse. Will retailers rush to create stores in the virtual world filled with avatars, in hope of boosting real-world profits? Is the metaverse just a fad, or will it transform global retail?

Join this 90-Minute Insight Episode to make sense of the metaverse and how we as retailers can enter a new world online. Our expert speakers will share insights on the future of retail in a digital world and new opportunities in the metaverse.
