Workday Rising Europe 2019
Retail and Hospitality Industry Summit


Tuesday 12 November 2019 | 09:00–13:00
Milano Convention Centre, Milan, Italy





At Workday Rising Europe, chat with retail and hospitality experts, your peers and take advantage of the most innovative technologies to meet the needs of your industry.


Why attend

Despite the retail and hospitality industry feeling the pressure, the landscape has never been so dynamic. Laurent Thoumine, Managing Director Consumer Goods, Retail and Fashion/Luxury, at Accenture, will outline how retail and hospitality companies can embrace the ‘wise pivot’ framework – a strategy that helps organisations pursue new growth opportunities without abandoning their core business.

The summit will also feature a panel of experts from some of the world's most innovative retail brands, who will discuss how their companies are staying ahead of the changes in their industry. The event is also a great chance to network with your peers before Workday Rising Europe begins.
