Leading US shows for Trade and Commerce
Online business and store-light models are gaining in significance in the US retail industry; an internet presence has long become obligatory. According to findings of the statics database Statista, the share of online retail sales in the USA will grow from currently 8.2% to more than 12% in 2020. Most medium-sized retailing companies as a consequence have already decided for an omni-channel sales strategy. In ecommerce, customers are just as much the proverbial kings they are in walk-in stores: those entrepreneurs keen on standing their ground on the market must adapt to their customers’ wishes, must know these wishes in detail and – absolutely essential – must be able to make personalized product recommendations. In the
coming years, the need will increase to gain customer data and to analyse and process it correctly, making this domain a major challenge on the retail industry. Retailers may choose from a number of US trade shows to learn more about which technical and conceptual solutions for implementation are available, how to best exploit the results of customer analyses, how to find and pursue new business strategies and deploy qualified
personnel. The world's leading US trade fairs are listed below.
