We are excited to announce a new collaboration between ULI Asia Pacific and, Fung Global Retail & Technology (FGRT) themed “Retail Revolution: Disrupt or be Disrupted”.

As part of the collaboration, we will organize events in Hong Kong, and across Asia between September 2017 and June 2018, focusing on innovation in retail and its applications to real estate. A short report will be produced by FGRT after each of the session.

The Connected Mall of the Future – Part I

Please join ULI for the first event of this exciting collaboration – “The Connected Mall of the Future – Part 1” – a showcase of customer facing tech solutions available to the mall and retail owners that can revolutionize the communication and engagement with the customers. We will hear from Deborah Weinswig (link to bio), Managing Director of FGRT, on the recent trends in retail technology and from the founders of two innovative companies, at the forefront of innovation:

ActiMirror helps stores become omnichannel hubs by creating a personalized consumer communication channel and enhancing the overall guest experience.

Neoma helps shopping malls create, launch and promote beacon-powered and Augmented Reality applications and helps retailers within the mall inspire and attract customers as soon as they enter the building.
