All Attendee Mixer
With a special welcome extended to our first time participants, all conference attendees meet in the Networking Lounge to kick off an amazing Outlook Leadership Conference. Everyone – retailers and sponsors - reunite with old friends and make new connections as we get the conference off to a great start.
With online purchasing and customer dis-loyalty surging, the brick-and-mortar convenience industry is in flux. In a channel laden with under-capitalized legacy locations, some chains are pouring millions of dollars into new store designs and remodels, while others are exiting at an historic pace.
Underscoring this tension are the stores themselves. In a groundbreaking study, CSP and Technomic deliver key insights on internal growth strategies and store design – from mobile ordering and self-checkout to drive-thru and car wash. We also delve into capital investment initiatives and external growth strategies including NTIs, acquisitions and divestitures of underperforming assets.
This exclusive report captures potential strategies for multiple business models, from small, gas-free urban stores to expansive suburban sites with seating. Driving this dynamic presentation is the fundamental question: How must the convenience industry evolve its assets and offerings to compete effectively in the new age of retail?
