How Can Technology Keep Physical Retail Relevant Beyond 2018?
Collapse Expand


Come and join conversations about retail and real estate development trends, attracting customers to physical locations, the disruption of online shopping in the industry, and how remaining retail locations will survive the digital age. Hear success stories of physical locations, talks about development schemes and related architectural practices, and discussions on partnerships potentially between online retailers and traditional brick-and-mortar locations. We’ll also try to find out how to put technology and 2018 trends into action through elevated service offerings, deeper engagement opportunities, and innovative connectivity. And we will discuss what solutions we can offer as Autodesk, and how to use our digital technology to heighten an integrated experience focusing on design teams for the physical building. We will cover traditional software suites; as-builts that function in a whole way in terms of being the base for a virtual experience platform; and BIM (Building Information Modeling), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and generative design.
