“Planning for the Retail Renaissance” – Preparing for the future at Thinking Retail Forums

TXT Retail to hold planning Forums across Europe, the US and Asia Pacific

TXT Retail, the first mover and leading provider of End-to-End Merchandise Lifecycle Management solutions for the Luxury, Fashion and Specialty Retail sectors, will be sponsoring the popular Thinking Retail Forums, a series of events in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific addressing the most important trends in retail planning practices.

The Forum series, “Planning for the Retail Renaissance” will start in Shanghai the 22nd of August, then proceed to Sydney, Berlin, London, Liverpool, Milan, New York, and conclude in Paris the 19th of October.

“Traditional Retailers face a sea change in business: store closures, retailers like Amazon and Zalando capturing huge share of the growing online market share, and wholesale changes in the customers shopping habits,” comments Peter Charness, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer at TXT Retail. “Like any major structural business change, there will be winners and losers but in the end there will be a Renaissance for those who can adapt to the forthcoming ‘new normal'. During the Forums we will focus on how retailers and brands can prosper in this new environment.”

TXT Retail customers, including a leading luxury brand, the online fashion platform Zalando and GiFi, a leading brand specialized in family and home products, will present their views on planning and PLM and offer insights based on their real-world, day-to-day business experiences. Additional sessions will include presentations by TXT Retail and partners Columbus Consulting, Ispira, Roland Berger and Tailorit.

The Forums will examine how a laser focus on localized assortments, the emergence of the Fulfillment Chain as a competitive advantage, determining the best ways to manage inventory as well as reorganizing the merchandise processes and office are important levers to succeed in modern retailing.

Each Forum will include abundant Q&A sessions and networking opportunities to facilitate sharing and professional development. Live demonstrations of the TXT Retail 8 solution will showcase the value of an End-to-End Merchandise Lifecycle Management approach, integrating processes from design, planning, delivery and in-season management.
