Digital technology is sparking a major transformation in retail. Embracing and driving innovation offers a major challenge and a key opportunity for retailers. The four major European retail associations, EuroCommerce, Euro Coop, European Retail Round Table (ERRT) and Independent Retail Europe, therefore made “Innovation and how to drive it” the central theme of their first European Retail Day in Brussels. The event, which attracted over 200 participants, heard EU Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen and a series of retail leaders speak on this theme.
