“Now more than ever, as we continue to adapt to a fast-evolving retail landscape and look ahead to the remaining half of 2021 and beyond, this is an incredibly important conversation for the entire industry to hear. Dave and Andrew are both experts on the topic and will offer unique perspectives and ideas that will greatly benefit our retail members,” said Spear. “There are targeted actions that can be taken now to enhance the competitive advantages offered by brick-and-mortar stores, and this thought-provoking session will share these recommendations for those who tune in.”
