What effect will Amazon have on your business?

September 25, 2017

Statistics from Commonwealth Bank show that 51% of Aussie retailers are aware of Amazon’s inevitable arrival, but are unsure how to prepare a competitive strategy in order to compete. Amazon’s arrival will no doubt trigger retailers to rethink how they do business, but this should not be seen as a bad thing. Increased competition, which also forces other industry players to re-evaluate their business model, has the real potential to benefit both consumers and those individual businesses. 

Rather than resist change, the retail sector should view this as an opportunity to innovate with the aim to survive and thrive.

Amazon is landing on Australian shores as early as November – and you’re not alone! 

River City Labs and the NRA have partnered together to deliver an unmissable practical panel event, where retailers can get all the help they need to prepare for new competition.

This event is your chance to learn as much as possible before Amazon arrives!

This event is open to the public to join the practical panel discussion on Monday evening, 9 October. Have your burning questions answered by leading retail experts, who have their finger on the pulse in retail!

Panel speakers include:

  • Dominique Lamb – CEO NRA
  • Conor Hagan – Digital Supply Chain Expert and Entrepreneur
  • Anita Dorwald – COO City Beach
