In this session, Juanita explores retail as we know it being transformed and shaped through partnerships and the evolution of co-opetition to co-operation.

Businesses are always looking for ways to adapt to changing customer demands, and how to transition to the business they want to be tomorrow.

Why harnessing social content is the key strategy to drive e-commerce growth in the future.
E-commerce is great for buying. However, people don’t just want to buy. Physical stores have always taken advantage of our desire to explore, be inspired, have an experience. But online? It's just a click and drag, no inspiration. Solving this inspiration problem is rapidly becoming one of the top priorities online. How do you transform online buying into a shopping experience? Through shoppable visual user-generated content — content that grabs your attention and inspires customers to shop not just buy.
