Overview

IMRG Click: Weekly Retail Data Show is the only webinar you need for all your online retail data, trends and insight.

COVID-19 is estimated to add £5.3 billion to the UK eCommerce industry in 2020, taking it from £73.6bn to £78.9bn. Across the world, eCommerce is forecasted to account for almost 90% of global chain retail sales added this year. With the busiest periods approaching, IMRG and special guests MIDAS are looking ahead to see how Black Friday and Christmas might impact these estimations, as well as how online retailers can thrive post-pandemic.

The volume of people shopping online has skyrocketed since March and as a result, most retail businesses have had to scrap their plans for 2020, instead forced to adapt to changing customer needs. This webinar aims to look at how the online retail market is progressing as we enter the 'new normal', and how retailers can tackle what are the most challenging, and if done correctly, the most rewarding periods in the trading calendar.

This webinar will also explore the necessity for traditional retailers to embrace eCommerce as well as how brands that are already advanced online can advance their activities to retain a leading position. We’ll then look at how some of the most successful retailers are adapting their strategies to ensure they are prepared to deal with the changes in demand and customer behaviour.

This webinar will also include a 45 minute panel Q&A with Manchester-based MIDAS and guests – ‘Retail Reboot: How to Thrive Post-Pandemic’.

Guest speakers include: Hannah Tracey – Head of Business Development, MIDAS; Danny Downs – Managing Director, Fanatics; and Tim Price – Director of Technology, N Brown.

Attend this webinar and expect to walk away with insight in to:

  • The challenges the retail industry faces post COVID-19, and pre the busiest calendar periods
  • How online retailers are adjusting their operations to address challenges and maximise opportunities highlighted by the pandemic?
  • How specific online retail sectors are performing 
  • Companies already online must innovate to meet changing consumer needs – how? 
  • Has COVID-19 shifted the UK towards eCommerce dominance?
  • Will COVID-19 be a catalyst for innovation in retail/eCommerce?

This webinar will be 1 hour long.
