Baltic Retail Forum 2023 Estonia

StrongPoint annual conference Baltic Retail Forum invites all retail professionals to gather for the 15th time. This time meeting place is in Tallinn, Estonia.

When? April 18

Where? Kultuurikatel event centre, Tallinn

Over the past year, retailers faced challenges in the supply chain, inflation, economic uncertainty, and geo-political factors. How can retailers sustain the resiliency of the last few years to navigate the current headwinds better?

To understand the challenges better and find solutions, the conference will look into:

Economic insights from the retail market perspective and consumer behavior tendencies – what to look out for?

Automation technologies that will transform stores and future retail operations – from warehouse automatization to improving customer experience.

The future of e-commerce and how it will change in upcoming years?


Reserve your spot. Participation for StrongPoint customers and partners is free of charge.

It’s Garbage! How Food Waste is Trashing the Climate

This talk will focus on supermarket food waste and its significant impact on the climate. With 40% of all food produced is wasted, award-winning food waste campaigner Matt Homewood will uncover the global food waste farce and review the impacts. Most importantly, technological and legislative solutions will be explored so that we can forge an exit plan to start making our food system fairer, more sustainable, and more efficient.

New Research and Consumer Behaviours are Pointing Retailers to the Future

The changing nature of shopper behaviour is impacting retail operations. In the talk insights from Zebra‘s latest research will be revealed to explain why “manned checkouts are checking out” and how “retail associates are becoming knowledge workers.” How can retailers adopt different technologies to set themselves up for success?
