A major annual event, Paris Retail Week reveals the latest trends in retailing. From 10 to 12 September, among over 700 exhibitors, some fifty start ups from France and abroad are presenting their innovations: retail tech, payment, data management, supply chain, marketing and customer relations – all the issues in retailing will be featured in the Start-up Area. The innovations reflect the breakthroughs enabling retailers to lay the foundations for the omnichannel and experiential retailing that customers are looking for.

In a subtle interplay between the physical world and digital innovation, retailers are providing phygital customer experiences, with no frontier between on and offline.

The watchword for this ecosystem is customer satisfaction, the centre of retailers’ preoccupations, with the aim of optimising the purchasing process and setting up a seamless customer experience. Things are constantly changing and start-ups have no hesitation in taking on the major players in the sector.

Paris Retail Week 2018 is a fruitful opportunity for these start-ups to get together and introduce new developments to potential customers and partners.

The Start-up Area features some fifty young companies with talents reflecting the diversity of the retail sectors.
