Bensadoun School of Retail Management Virtual Mini Retail Summit

Virtual Mini Retail Summit

We cordially invites you to join us for our Third Virtual Mini Retail Summit. In this event, our two speakers, Horacio Barbeito from Walmart Canada and Bora Keskin from Duke University, will share their perspectives on business implications of COVID-19.

Every year, the Bensadoun School of Retail Management holds an international academic summit on retail, focusing on the major issues facing the sector. Students and business executives benefit from the work and experience of the speakers, as well as networking opportunities.

In 2018, the theme was fashion retailing and artificial intelligence and in 2019, disruption in the customer experience. We welcomed as speakers - professors from the best universities in North America and Europe (eg Cambridge, Cornell, Harvard, LBS, MIT, NYU, Stanford, Wharton, etc.) and senior executives from leading companies in retail and its ecosystem (eg Airbnb, Element AI, Intel, RBC, Ride with Via, Rubikloud, SSense, Stitch Fix, Walmart, etc.).
