Westfield breakfast 2013Tickets to this month’s Westfield annual breakfast series are selling fast, with the Sydney event already sold out.

Tickets still remain for the The Future is Coming, Ready or Not breakfast in Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Auckland.

Four international and local retail marketing experts will present their perspective on the future of retail for 2014 and beyond.

Speakers include Steve Brown, Intel chief evangelist and futurist, US; David Roth, CEO The Store, UK; Jamie Gutfreund, chief strategy officer, The Intelligence Group, US; and Jon Bird, chairman IdeaWorks ANZ, Australia.

Steve Brown will address the topic Computing Changes Everything, presenting a unique perspective on where technology is taking retail. From intelligent shelves to holographic displays, Brown will share his views on how computing is changing everything.

David Roth will focus on how History Shapes the Future, and will explain how the past is a powerful predictor. Roth will also address continuing disruption in retail – he believes there will be more change in the next 10 years than the last 50.

Jamie Gutfreund will look at What Gen Y Really Wants. In an increasingly digital world, it has never been easier to reach consumers, yet it has never been more challenging to engage them. She will share recent research and an overview for how to capture the attention and loyalty of young shoppers.
