Future of Retail - Edge & CGF Virtual Conference Executive Summary

Over the past 25 years, retail has been on a difficult journey: from a physical-only activity to an omnichannel pursuit. The growth of ecommerce around the world is well documented and the pandemic has accelerated digital retail as shoppers have shifted their spending from experience and holiday to cooking equipment, TVs and trampolines.
