Track 1: One Retail, One Consumer Experience – Evolution of Omni‐channel Retailing
Track 2: On Shelf Availability Innovations – A Scientific Look at the On‐shelf Availability and Shrinkage Management
Consumers increasingly embrace digital technologies and
devices in all stages of their new buying behavior. Digitalization
and mobility are integrated with physical shopping behavior
and retailers are being advised they should look at Omni‐
channel retailing. In Omni‐channel retailing, a customer can use
more than one sales channel to shop from a retailer for any
given transaction and the challenge to retailers is to create an
unified experience to the consumers and, most importantly, to
keep this consumer purchase again. In this breakout track
session, we will discuss:
‐ What are the trends of Omni‐channel retailing now and in the future? ‐ What are the strategies behind?
‐ How to bridge between online and offline?
How to bridge between online and offline?
‐ How to define shopping experience?
‐ What exactly do the multi‐channel shoppers want?
According to a research by ECR group, the out‐of‐stock levels in
general retailers are still averaging at 8.3%. Promotional lines
are likely to be twice the level of stock lines. Out of stocks are
costing the industry billions every year. 20% of all out of stocks
remain unresolved for more than 3 days. There is only a 4%
chance of buying all 40 items on your shopping list. On‐shelf
Availability (OSA) remains a vexing issue for the retail industry,
but in a competitive battle for each shopper’s spend, the
benefits of approving out of stocks have become even more
compelling. Industry leaders in Asia Pacific are moving forward
with their initiatives aimed at resolving many of the challenges
OSA raises. In this breakout track session, we will discuss:
‐ How to ensure OSA? What are the root causes?
‐ What quantified benefits does OSA really offer to the retailers What quantified benefits does OSA really offer to the retailers
and the manufacturers? What is the role of technology innovation in the OSA optimizations? ‐ Any best practices available in the market? How to determine right product, right time, right quantity on shelf? How to collaborate to minimize the OSA risk?

Track 3: Life Critical New Practices on Food Safety –
Current Status, Regulatory Perspectives and Future Outlook
Food safety is a global problem threatening the food security of
millions of people. The food safety problem is more prevalent in
the least industrialized world than in the industrialized world
(McIntyre et al. 2009). In the less developed world, unsafe food
and water borne diseases are responsible for the deaths of
approximately 2.2 million people annually, 1.9 million children
amongst them (WHO 2008). Food safety related health
problems, like acute diarrheal illness, affect up to 1.8 million
children worldwide in developing countries. Nearly 700,000
people die of food and water safety‐related causes every year in
the Asia‐Pacific region alone (WHO 2004). With the increasing
desire on providing superior consumer experience, it implies
that the retail industry needs to provide trust products or
services. In this breakout track session, we will discuss:
‐ What are the requirements on food safety and status across What are the requirements on food safety and status across
regions?
‐ Why food safety is still a key concern to the retail industry?
‐ What implications to the industry and what are the practices for the industry?

Track 4: Growing Talent Excellence – Building a Talent‐focused Organization
Retail industry involves relatively scalable people and therefore,
quality and performance of staff is critical for shaping the retail
image. Talent management refers to the anticipation of
required human capital for an organization and the planning to
meet those needs. Retailers that offer a differentiated customer
experience by delivering an excellent service from highly skilled
staff will be the future winners. Brands that offer fresh services
or products will retain their consumers. In this breakout track
session, we will discuss:
‐ How to define the right talent metrics, to measure and to analyze?
‐ How to create loyalty and a high level of engagement among employees at all levels?
‐ How to align skills/training with business goals?
‐ How to reduce costs without sacrificing performance?

Plenary 3: Retail Big Data – The Game Changer Le
eading Competition Through Data and Analytics
“Big Data” has been touted as the next “big thing” in e‐Commerce. But according to a research, only 47% of retailers
understand how to apply Big Data to their busin
ness. We can expect non‐retail ecommerce to be similar. Big Data
refers to a large set of data too complex to be handled

by conventional database management tools. It
It’ss the data
that exists beyond your web analytics, ERP, or CR
RM databases. It often exists outside of your organization, think of
customer sentiment and social sharing data owned by Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, or competitive pricing data
from comparison shopping engines. Big data an
nd analytics become a key weapon for the retail industry. In this
session we will discuss how to use this trend smarrtly including:
What is the source of retail big data? ‐ How to translate into business intelligence?
