Retailers and consumer brands have radically altered their strategies in recent months in response to the coronavirus outbreak. They’ve introduced new services like curbside pickup, focused on in-demand products and revised their marketing and websites to address consumer demand.

On this webinar a panel of retail experts will review the lessons learned from the pandemic, what we know about consumer sentiment today and the technologies that can be implemented before the holiday season to maximize sales and profits.
