The talk by Pieter Geldenhuys on the Future of Shopping, among other things, will take you on a journey into the future; into the Cybersphere that will amaze, intrigue and possibly also scare you a little. Pieter asks "How far is the future from us?" by looking at certain international trends that will soon hit SA; trends such as the leveraging of QR codes to alter consumer behavior, the use of smartphones to facilitate In-Mall navigation and so much more.
The presentation not only highlights shopping innovations that are emerging around the globe, but also provides ideas on how these trends, ideas and technologies can be positioned to benefit the current shopping model in South African Shopping Centres. Pieter Geldenhuys
