Retail innovators from around the world gather to discuss pricing, promotion and markdown
transformations with unmatched peer-to-peer networking
AUSTIN, TX – (September 11, 2018) – Retailers face an imperative to ensure they are equipped to meet the needs of demanding price-savvy shoppers that have real-time insight into retailers’ pricing and promotions across all channels. Recent Revionics-commissioned global shopper studies conducted by Forrester Consulting found that for the majority of shoppers price is the single most important factor in determining where they shop. This has also increased the critical need for datascience capabilities such as machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), which provide powerful insight into fast-changing shopper, competitor and market trends.
To help retailers navigate these challenges and provide more targeted, customer-centric pricing Revionics, Inc. will be hosting its ninth annual price, promotion and markdown forum, Insight 2018, Sept. 30 – Oct. 3, at the Swissotel Chicago. This content is carefully crafted to enable retailers to Innovate, Accelerate and Dominate, featuring inspiring real-world perspectives from leading retail executives, globally renowned industry analysts and Revionics executives, scientists and technologists.
This forum provides perspectives from industry pioneers on how to obtain optimal bottom-line results, accelerate ROI, explore game-changing tech innovations, maximize business performance and respond faster and more strategically with applied AI. In addition, attendees will experience unmatched peer-to-peer networking
opportunities throughout the event, including an architecture boat tour and and a private event with live music at the world-reknowned Shedd Aquarium.

- James McCann, Former CEO, Ahold USA: “Retooling Retail for the Tech Age: Analytics and AI in Action”
