Swedish retail innovation Manila seminar

The Embassy of Sweden in Manila, together with Business Sweden and the Philippine Retailers Association (PRA), organized a seminar entitled ‘How to Increase Retail Productivity through Innovation‘ in August, reports the Swedish Embassy there.

(L-R) Paul Santos of Philippine Retailers Association(PRA), Alexander Hamilton of Vobling, Philip Siow of Axis Communications, Sweden´s Ambassador Harald Fries, Holger Roessner of AdvanIDe Pte Ltd (ASSA ABLOY), Georg Platzer of IKANO Retail Asia (IKEA), Ann-Sofi Lindmark of Zone Systems and Samie Lim of PRA

In recent years, the digitalization of the retail industry has created new ways of shopping online, with infinite product offerings being delivered to your doorstep through the internet. This, in turn, forces retailers to rethink how they work in terms of shopping experience, productivity and service. The seminar highlighted how innovations can support that change.

“Sweden is proud to have many strong international retailers such as IKEA and H&M. These retailers have benefited from the Swedish culture of innovation. The seminar featured some of the best Swedish technological companies that have supported the retail sector in this ever-changing environment through their innovations.”
