CSA’s X/SPECS announces digital innovation theme


Chain Store Age’s 13-year-old Executive SPECS event has been rebranded X/SPECS to underscore a new focus on innovation and in-store technologies.

X/SPECS 2015, to be held Oct. 27-29 in Scottsdale, Arizona, will showcase the evolution of physical stores and the role that technology plays in transforming the in-store customer experience through a series of exciting presentations that will include:

  • FIVE Technologies that will Revolutionize the In-Store Experience. What does the future hold? This session will put a spotlight on ground-breaking innovations poised to impact retail over the next 10 years.

  • Retail Trend-Setters: How did they do that? Cutting-edge retailers often pave the way to a high-tech, innovative in-store future. Go behind the scenes with three trend-setting retail concepts.

  • Amazon Can’t Do That: Consumer Desire and the Store of the Future. How can the physical store rival the best tools and conveniences of the online shopping model? Or, simply put, what can’t Amazon do? Understand the threats – and opportunities – of a digital age.

Held at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, X/SPECS also features high-level networking functions and strategic face-to-face exchanges – all in a luxurious setting.
