The Future Of Grocery
The Marylebone Hotel, 47 Welbeck Street London, W1G 8DN
Fighting for digital change, customers & market share
2022 will see continued change across CPG and Grocery - driven by our life-changing last year, the sustainability agenda now front and centre, plus the “clear and present danger” presented by so many disruptive competitors arriving with war chests and MBA’s .
All the chatter this year in your sector has been about investment in eB2B platforms to drive efficiency and build some protection from disruption, coupled with the tearing up of technology roadmaps and the accelerated creation of digital products and services. In short - you have all over-delivered, but feel somewhat overwhelmed!
Our autumn dinner for leaders across this sector was designed to get us all thinking about next year. How will you maintain momentum? Where are the quicker wins as well as big bets? Will your brand take DTC really seriously OR are you still stuck in channel-conflict inertia?
Our dinner was introduced by an industry expert who led the evening discussion. We debated:
- The real agenda for 2022
- Dealing with change at scale across every function
- Retaining momentum and permission to “crack on”
- Turning channel disruption to your advantage
