ACRS Vision Forum 2017 Melbourne

Join the ACRS for this seminar setting the tone for retail, marketing and digital in 2017. This event will bring together highlights from three of the world’s best retail, technology, and innovation conferences.

Hear from a series of presentations covering the key learnings from Retail’s BIG Show, South by Southwest, and the World Retail Congress. All three conferences provide a foundation for growth and transformation based on revolutionary insights and innovations.

Our presenters will share the latest insights direct from these events and join as a panel to field specific audience interests and questions at the end of the session.


Danielle Cantlon (Senior Research Consultant at ACRS) will share key learnings from the World Retail Congress. The Congress is set to address the most pressing issues facing retail today, from new in-store experiences, next generation ecommerce, new waves of technology, and what really motivates the increasingly individualistic but connected consumer.

Maddie Livesey (General Manager of The General Store) will share key learnings from Retail’s BIG Show 2017. This BIG Show addressed innovation as a top priority for retail, specifically innovations around the customer experience, data and analytics, AR and VR, and co-creation.

Sean Sands (Associate Professor & Managing Director at ACRS) will share key learnings from SXSW, which was dominated by intelligent machines and a wave of new start-ups. SXSW also explored how marketers can gain consumer attention in an increasingly cluttered world. 

The ACRS Vision Forum 2017 will help you will discover new ideas, learn about the latest best practices, and receive actionable insights directly from some of the best innovators around the world.
