Keynote: Retail Growth And What To Do About It

Presentation with Q&A from Russ Dieringer, Founder of Stratably

We know eCommerce matters, but can we articulate it? Too often the conversation starts and stops with digital penetration. Maybe you’re in a category where digital is 5% or one where it’s 40%. But regardless, that’s just one piece of the puzzle. As part of our conference kick-off, join Russ Dieringer, seasoned research analyst, founder, and CEO of Stratably, as he illuminates the broader retail outlook and dives into a dozen reasons why eCommerce needs to be a cornerstone of every brand's growth strategy. Russ will challenge the pervasive “return to store narrative”, highlight how brands can take advantage of the unique elements of eCommerce, and share why opportunity with eCommerce lies within its complexity.

The Epicenter of Ecommerce Innovation is right here in your backyard

There are a dozen retail-focused conferences and summits on your wish-list this year. But let's be real, you might only get approval to go to one of them this year.

You hit the glittering streets of Vegas for a couple of nights,  commune with smart people who "get it", and catch a couple of inspiring keynotes.

But when you get home, the sparkle starts to fade. You need to catch up on a week of missed work. Those new friends you made start fading into the abyss of your LinkedIn feed.

It’s time to make real connections, right here in the Perimeter.

Keynote: Retail Growth And What To Do About It, Russ Dieringer, Stratably - 2:30pm
A deep dive into the broader retail outlook and a dozen reasons why eCommerce needs to be a cornerstone of every brand's growth strategy. Russ will challenge the pervasive “return to store narrative”, highlight how brands can take advantage of the unique elements of eCommerce, and share why opportunity with eCommerce lies within its complexity.

'Escape from Retail Island', Acadia CEO Jared Belsky - 3:30pm
The advertising industrial complex, coupled with traditional org charts and financial attribution, forces retail media into a box. Ecommerce is expected to not only grow, but be profitable on a standalone basis. What could go wrong?
Acadia CEO Jared Belsky brings his decades of experience both on the brand and agency leadership side to suggest a new paradigm for media allocation.

Peer group discussions - 4:00pm
Acadia practitioners will facilitate small group discussions around business-critical topics like Amazon vendor negotiations, retail media budget allocation, emerging marketplaces, and more.
Non-competitive, confidential, and practical.

Refreshments - 5:30pm
Join us on the rooftop balcony for drinks and hors d' ouvres from Acadia client and award-winning restaurant company Fifth Group (South City Kitchen, Ecco, La Tavola, Alma, etc)
