In this omnichannel world, customer loyalty is hard to earn and maintain. Keeping up with consumers’ unique tastes is difficult enough in the best of times but, in today’s marketplace, accurately cataloguing post-COVID changes in shopper behavior has become a full-time job, especially when it comes to food and diet.

This webinar will provide insight into how you can effectively measure and engage these shoppers. Once-siloed strategies such as e-Commerce, incentives, audience management, and media must be united and consistent in order to secure shoppers’ loyalty. To help brands and retailers prepare for what’s ahead, join us for “The Future of Food Retailing and the Accelerated Digital Age,” presented by Inmar Intelligence and the Food Institute, on Tuesday, July 13 at 2:00 p.m. EST.

• Provide forecasts for food retailing channels
• Explore the factors impacting the new shopper journey
• Discover format and shopper behavior shifts that will directly inform your digital transformation strategy over the next five year
• Learn more about Retail Media Networks and why they will be the driving force of success for the future of food retailing
• Outline activation strategies that brands and retailers need to employ now to successfully respond to ever-changing conditions and help prepare your business for what’s yet still to come
