“I always recommend to retailers that they should look at the exciting experiences being delivered outside the US and see what they can learn from this. In the Monday session “Cutting-Edge Grocery Experiences from Around the Globe” expect to hear about frictionless retail and autonomous stores in grocery!

Digital grocery shopping is here to stay post-pandemic and finding ways to bring the unique experiences digital provides to in-store customers is critical to keep those customers shopping. The Monday session “Unifying the Online and In-Store Shopping Experience” will feature insights from Albertson’s which has done considerable work in this space.

And the Wednesday session “Case Studies: Reaching Consumers Through Emerging Platforms” will focus on something we’ve all talked about recently – shoppable video and voice assistants, aka conversational commerce. Looking forward to see what two different brands, Walmart and The Fresh Market have planned for these technologies!”

Melissa Minkow

“I’m very curious to hear retailers’ discuss their plans for navigating the inflationary environment, and I look forward to the technology innovation sessions regarding digital commerce accelerators and personalization! Grocery is always an interesting area of retail because of how ingrained consumer behaviors are, so forces that can shake up such patterns make for very creative conversations at this event.”.

Melissa Minkow, Director, Retail Strategy at CI&T

Tech Leaders

Stewart Samuel

“The area that I’ll be paying close attention to is the impact of technology on the in-store environment, including the shopper and associate experience.  Given the current cost and labour challenges, technology will be a big part of the solution, bringing more automation and simplification to processes. How have retailers’ plans changed over the last year?”.

Stewart Samuel, Program Director at IGD Canada

Booth #935

Grocery stores have a new opportunity to take their reward programs to the next level. Rather than relying on traditional loyalty programs that have nominal differences from store to store, large grocery chains can now offer deeper, more valuable rewards by issuing branded cards: Financial services that allow you to do more for your customers. Customer spend data inside and outside of your store. With loyalty programs that are truly differentiated, your customers – and you – win.

Visit Alviere at Groceryshop booth #935 to learn more about how you can customize an offering exactly for your unique customer base.
