The End of Online Shopping
The End of Online Shopping

Speaker: Wijnand Jongen. There is a lot of turmoil in the retail world. Shoppers with a new shopping DNA are flocking to stores. A new economic paradigm of four new economies are changing the world of retail: the smart economy, the sharing economy, the circular economy and the glocal economy. New shopping ecosystems are becoming dominant retail players. For local retailers, it's a prisoner's dilemma: Do you participate or not? Business models are changing and new players are storming the market. Will online shopping come to an end?
