Whether brands and retailers are looking at new ways of customer engagement to today’s applications of AI within the different areas of their business and new ways to scale personalisation in 2018 to the way technologies are enhancing the in-store experiences they offer – 2018 is going to be another year of fast-paced evolution for all of us.

Berger adds: “We’ve seen such a monumental shift in consumer spending habits in the last few years, and increasingly the consumer is dictating how the market operates. It has never been more important for any consumer related company, brand or retailer to understand their motivations in order to adapt and react.”
