For a stronger relationship with the customer, the agency has always innovated in the construction of harmonious paths, between the useful and the experiential, of a multi-channel business. From the craftsman to the international network, from the independent shop to the department store or the shopping center, innovate to create merchant and striking concepts

Smart Talk - Alibaba - China’s luxury tale, digitizing high-end retail for millennial consumers

Once reluctant to embrace digitisation, luxury brands have realized they have to adapt quickly to the new consumption habits of the “digital natives”. This is particularly true in China, the second largest luxury market in the world, where consumers account for 21% of the global luxury goods market and are due to represent 44% of the total global market by 2025.

In China, Alibaba Group has pioneered this approach and with its Luxury Pavilion has been partnering with luxury brands to accompany them on the “New Retail” path - a business model which combines the best of the online and offline worlds to offer a seamless and tailored shopping experience, no matter the channel.

Sebastien Badault, Managing Director of Alibaba France, and Director of International Fashion and Luxury of Alibaba Group, will discuss this and share further insights from the exciting Chinese commerce scene, looking at why this is a great moment for luxury brands and businesses to look East and open up to digital innovation.

Plenary «  Smart Customer Experience »

Even though experiments have always been a part of retailing, for the past few years we have seen an acceleration in innovation, in line with the growing understanding of its vital importance.
The headlong race to engage consumers has made retailers keen to have customer data in order to get a better idea of the purchasing experience and enrich it with new innovations. How are these innovations applied in retailing? How can data be collected and used to improve the CX? Will artificial intelligence with cognitive computing, the internet of things, the in-house store and the Blockchain be able to save us?
