10:35 AM Morning Refreshments & Networking Break with Retail (r)Evolution Book Signing with David Kepron

The Digital Travel Summit is pleased to present an exclusive opportunity to snag a free copy* of Retail (r)Evolution and the chance to have your book signed by the author before he takes the main stage for a fireside chat with industry peer Bill Ramsey.

Retail (r)Evolution, the latest title from ST Books and VMSD magazine, takes the reader through the ways the human brain has traditionally responded to retail environments, and how recent technological innovations are changing everything. From increasing reliance on handheld devices to the emergence, effects and future of social networking both inside and outside of stores, the contemporary human brain is being rewired to perceive the world in a very different manner than even half a generation ago. Author David Kepron cites numerous scientific studies that demonstrate the seismic shifts in customer attitudes, behavior and actions regarding, among other things, selection and choice, expectations and interactions (or not) with retail staff, and overall, long-term satisfaction with a brand or store based on in-store experiences. 

(Supplies are limited, free copy of book available on first come, first served basis.  One book per participating attendee.)
