Online & Offline Retail 2019: Highlights

At the Forum, participants in Session 1 “Retail 2019. Business in modern realities. New leadership strategies” gave their estimates of the current state of retail and discussed new development trends in the industry. According to Sergei Belyakov, ACORT Presidium Chairman, the market situation remains uneasy. In his speech, S. Belyakov analyzed the economic state of modern retail. According to him, the situation in which Russian retail operates is far from being optimistic today.

Alexey Grigoriev, METRO AG Chief Representative in Moscow, VP for External Corporate Policy, highlighted the importance of dialogue between the retail sector and the state. Modern trade in Russia should enjoy all the preferences provided at the legislative level. The government support in this regard should be in the form of deregulation, guarantees and incentives for small retailers.

Dmitry Rusakov, Head of Industry-Wide Projects and Programs, X5 Retail Group, also reminded of the need for interaction between business and the state on a single platform. He believes the state should focus on the formation of common data sources, while sellers should maintain an open dialogue with small retailers.

Mikhail Volkov, Deputy General Director for Operations Management and Retail, Russian Post, spoke about global trends and prospects for the development of small retail formats, as well as Russian Post’s plans in this area.

During Session 2 “Digital transformation of retail. Business and Technology” Vitaliy Porubov, Head of IT Strategies and Innovations at X5 Retail Group, spoke about technological innovations in retail, the main trends and experience of X5 Retail Group in this area.

Evgeny Bakhin, CIO, Inventive Retail Group, raised an urgent issue of the effectiveness of IT tools designed to increase the retailers’ revenues.

These and other issues were discussed by representatives of the governance of the Bank of Russia, the National Payment Card System, and a number of major retailers and banks.

On the second day of the PLUS-Forum “Online & Offline Retail 2019”, Mikhail Barabash, Head of CRM and Loyalty Programme, Jeans Symphony, spoke at Session 5 “Loyalty and Marketing in the Modern World” to share his personal experience in building a successful loyalty programme and to explain what myths accompany this process.

In his speech, Roman Romensky, Head of Sales, Center Technology company, Stoloto brand, touched upon the topic of cooperation between retailers and lotteries. According to the speaker, the year of 2014 – when interest and customer loyalty to the products began to grow – can be considered the starting point for the development of relations between retail and lottery in Russia.

Vladimir Gorbunov, Founder of Gorod loyalty programme for Troika cardholders, the largest loyalty program in Russia, spoke about the digitalization of the omnichannel loyalty programme as a new trend in the modern market.

Alexander Shurkaev, Head of Online Retail, Nielsen, opened Session 6 “E-commerce. Key drivers and new points of sales growth” to share the agency’s findings in the field of online sales.
