Jagan Institute of Management Studies (JIMS), Rohini Sec-5 hosted the Retail Conclave 2022 with an objective to bring on one platform new-age digital retailers, academicians, industry leaders, and students to deliberate about the transition of retail industry from traditional to digital mode. The prime focus of the Annual Retail Conclave 2022 was to explore the pros and cons of AI and AR implementations in the Indian retail sector.
Undoubtedly, the retail sector has undergone massive developments in the last decade with two key ingredients i.e. AI and AR. In the post pandemic scenario, it is crucial for the students of PGDM (Retail Management) to understand the global technological revolution, and the challenges faced in the integration of AI and AR technology for the budding retailers in India.
Renowned corporate practitioner namely Mr Ashvinder Singh (Managing Director, Unistyle Image) was the Chief Guest at the conclave. Mr. Savio Nunes (Sr. Vice President, Operations – Landmark Group), Mr. Prasoon Bhardwaj (AVP – Buying & Merchandising – Reliance Retail, (JioMart B2B)), Mr. Manish Porwal (Co-Founder, LogiNext), Mr. Jay Sharma (Head Marketing, Shaze Retail), and Ms. Megha Bhargava (Category Head, Lenskart) were integral part of the conclave who played an instrumental role in building the perspective of the attendees. Suggesting a way forward to the bright minds especially the PGDM aspirants is crucial to help them choose their career preferences wisely.
With digital platform and website becoming the mainstream hub for shopping, options such as apparel fitting experience, try and buy make-up technology, online personalized recommendations of products, constant notifications are the trend and crying need of the e-commerce in the 21st century. As Indian hinterland has shown tremendous growth in terms of consuming FMCG goods, the big question being deciphered at the virtual retail conclave was ‘Have Indian retailers capitalised fully on AI and AR to capture market share globally?’
