The Nordic region's leading collaboration platform for Retail initiatives

We're transforming the Nordic retail story through collaborative innovation by pioneering excellence, setting new industry standards, and delivering dynamic customer-centric experiences.

The summit for retail excellence in the Nordics

The Summit will have a top lineup of speakers and round-tables to explore retail and retail innovation from every aspect. 

Nordic Summit 2024

Welcome to the Nordic Summit, a unique event where Tier 1 retailers across various industries in the Nordic region join stakeholders such as suppliers, central banks, and retail associations to collaborate on shaping the future of retail.

This year's Summit will feature an "Innovation Corner," where suppliers can showcase their solutions for Tomorrow's Shopping Experience and The Next Generation Store in The Future of Retail. Alongside this, the Summit will delve into five key focus areas:

  • The shopping experience of the future

  • Enhancing global payment performance

  • How to increase customer engagement

  • Failing forward: Do we have a culture for failing?

  • AI’s impact on our industry

The program will emphasize market demand, highlighting pivotal changes in the retail community. Through inspiring keynotes, fireside chats, and panel discussions, attendees will explore the reasons and methods behind these changes. Networking opportunities will be abundant, culminating in a social dinner.

Join us as we explore and innovate at the forefront of retail evolution.
