Retail at Sea- A Technology Oasis

by Brandon Wetzstein | at MinneBar 13 | 11:15 – 12:05 in New York | View Schedule

Almost a year ago I started working for a company that operates as a white label retailer on major cruise lines.

But this isn't your regular retail environment...

Imagine if your stores moved globally, your demographics shifted constantly, your international teams lived at work, and your technology was from 1994.

Cruise lines are catching up fast in technology, adding connectivity on board at the demand of guests and opening up technology doors once locked.

What would you do if connectivity suddenly became available to you and the candy store of technologies once out of reach were now available?

In this session I'll share the challenges and opportunities of retail at sea, and lead an open discussion on retail technology.

What would you do?

Unlocking innovative and creative potential is my purpose.

I enjoy finding what methods, tools, and environments work best to help others communicate, create, and imagine together.

After working in big companies for most of my career, I started my own company, IN8 Create, to help teams think and work better through workshops and team building.

Outside of work, you can find me experimenting in the kitchen, finding the next amazing dumpling or burger spot, or reading a book about behavioral science and/or sci-fi / fantasy.
