SwissCham Shanghai is delighted to invite you to:

18:30 – 20:30
@The Westin Bund Centre

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

Retail isn’t dying, it’s reinventing itself. The evolution of New Retail in China continues to shake things up for traditional bricks-and-mortar stores in the drive to integrate everything offline with online, and the rest of the world is looking on as China leads the way.

New Retail combines tech-driven integration with traditional models of commerce to enhance the overall retail experience, creating a real-time manifestation of the individual consumer’s commercial desires by blending the digital and physical together. In other words, ‘shopping’ is no longer the same thing as simply ‘buying’, and nowhere is this more prominent than in China. While this all may sound complicated, the fundamental concepts behind implementing New Retail are in fact quite easy to grasp.

Join us and our expert speakers as we explain and discuss the future of (New) Retail.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
