Retailing in the Digital Age: State of Chaos or Pendulum Swing?

Tuesday, October 24  |  9:30 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.

The pace of change in the retail channel continues to accelerate. Hear from those actively managing investments in the retail sector and the strategies they are employing to adjust the retail model without losing their connection with consumers in stores, in the digital marketplace, and across social and other media. How are retailers adjusting to the dynamics caused by the competition between Walmart and Amazon? What is the future of mall-based real estate? The answer to these and other timely questions will provide distressed investors and turnaround professionals the tools they need to successfully navigate these turbulent waters.
