The retail industry is facing a tall set of challenges as it enters 2013. The convergence of new trends in technology, economics and society are compelling retailers to transform their enterprise around the modern consumer.
As it begins to deal with these challenges, the industry will gather for its annual National Retail Federation (NRF)’s Annual Convention & Expo, also known as “Retail’s BIG Show,” January 14-15 in New York City. The Big Show hosts over 25,000 global retailers with representation from more than 80 countries.
We had an opportunity to discuss the changes in the Retail industry and the upcoming NRF Big Show with Saif Rivers, Retail Client Principal, HP Enterprise Services.
