Retail in the Age of Amazon event poses timely questions about changing retail landscape

An upcoming event promises attendees a fascinating exploration of how retail-giant Amazon has affected every aspect of modern retail strategy, and information on how companies can learn to fight back. Retail in the Age of Amazon offers an illuminating and insightful examination of the challenges and opportunities the industry now faces due to Amazon’s ongoing power in the retail space.

The Covent Garden talk, hosted by software-provider Qubit, will bring together a host of experts for an evening of lively discussion and debate, and the line-up for the event is truly impressive, with global retail strategist Carl Boutet providing the opening talk. Montreal-based Boutet is best known for his extensive work in the retail world, and for helping drive innovation to companies in Canada through StudioRx, which supports bringing new technologies to top retail outlets. Rounding out the panel is Julia Leckey and Robyn Savage; Leckey is a renowned brand and retail expert who has worked with some of the world’s top agencies and brands, before creating innovation-hub Honest, while Robyn is the respected Customer Success lead at Qubit, bringing considerable experience within the retail sector to the talk.

“The retail industry is incredibly creative and hard-working, but what we need now is to come together and talk about innovative ways to reach out to the customer,” says Catherine Erdly, who is helping to host the event. “What is exciting about these events is that they are open to retailers of all sizes – and allow a real diversity of views from people all across the industry.”

Retail in the Age of Amazon is open to companies of all sizes, from large retailers to smaller boutique brands eager to find out how their own business will be affected by Amazon’s continued dominance of the retail landscape – and how they too can compete on a grander scale.

The event will be held on 23 April 2018 at Covent Garden and gets started at 6:30pm – tickets are limited, so advance booking is recommended. For more information about the event or to book direct, head to the official website at
