As part of PARIS RETAIL WEEK 2016, echoing the E-Commerce Paris and Equipmag shows, we proposed to discover very concretely the Parisian stores that stand out for their innovative concepts.

During the Paris Retail Tours, the groups of retailers visited several outlets located in prestigious Parisian districts, whose concepts are distinguished by their innovative character, by new technologies implemented, by a specific design or by merchandising in place to attract and accompany visitors, making the purchasing process a unique, comprehensive and seamless experience.

A day of inspiration and competitive monitoring to broaden your horizons, enrich yourself with best practices and meet with representatives of the selected stores to get their feedback.
