Each year, we hold an international academic summit on retail, focusing on the major issues facing the sector. We have welcomed speakers ranging from professors from the best universities in North America and Europe, such as Cambridge, Harvard, LBS, MIT and Wharton, to senior executives from leading companies in retail and its ecosystem such as Airbnb, Intel, RBC, Stitch Fix and Walmart.
Reshaping the Future of Retail conference, organized by the Bensadoun School of Retail Management and sponsored by KPMG, will take place in Montreal on September 22, 2023.
We kicked off the Virtual Mini Retail Summits in October 2020 in response to the pandemic. As of 2021, the Retail Summit is supported by KPMG with the goal to return to an in-person event.
