In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Bricks and Clicks: The Next Generation of Retailing

-- Frost & Sullivan hosts complimentary webinar evaluating the macro to micro implications of connectivity and convergence on the retail industry

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


11:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012


Online, with complimentary registration


Frost & Sullivan Visionary Innovation Program Manager Archana Amarnath and Senior Research Analyst Archana Vidyasekar

Bricks and Clicks will become the retailing norm of the future, with every retailer expected to have a hybrid business model by 2025. Mega Trends such as connectivity and convergence will serve as conduits for retailers to merge digital, virtual and physical into one fusion bricks and clicks model. New retailing modes like interactive stores, click-and-collect, social commerce and virtual stores are imminent as retailers extend more customer touch points. Social trends, urbanization and other Mega Trends will compel retailers to change the traditional model, shifting from big-box retailing to small-box formats. This evolution to a bricks and clicks model will itself become a Mega Trend that significantly impacts and shapes other industries, including automotive, logistics and finance. This interactive webinar will clarify this path in retail evolution to bricks and clicks and provide an understanding of the micro impact of this Mega Trend on retail and related industries.

Why You Should Attend:

  • Gain Insight on the Future of Clicks: From Transactional Websites to Virtual Retailing
  • Explore Innovative Bricks and Clicks Business Models
  • Spot the New Retailing Models through Social Media: F-Commerce (Facebook Commerce)
  • Learn About the Future of Bricks: From Big-Box to Small-Box Retailing
  • Realize the Implications of Global Mega Trends on Retail
  • Understand the Impact of Bricks and Clicks on Allied Industries – From Dealerships to Online Stores

This briefing is suited for all stakeholders across the value chain including retailers, manufacturers, logistics providers, parcel service providers, automobile makers, software companies, consumer technology companies and makers of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG).

Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Archana Amarnath:
"Large scale access to connected devices, social media and digital checkpoints is driving the adoption of hybrid business models. The 'Virtual Store' is an excellent example of emerging retail technologies such as Augmented Reality and QR Coding being leveraged and integrated to offer a unique, convenient and innovative shopping experience. In fact, Tesco's online retail sales in Korea increased by nearly 130 percent with the introduction of Tesco's Subway Virtual Store."

Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Archana Vidyasekar:
"Social media will outgrow its position as an advertising platform to become more of a marketplace, as more retailers offer products for sale on the social platforms. We are already seeing small business thrive on Facebook."
