Aussies are buying up more and more online! According to a recent study, improved trade for small business and exceptional growth in fashion sales helped Australian online retail sales rebound, totalling almost $20 billion in annual spends in the year to May 2016. The latest NAB Online Retail Sales Index May 2016 saw sales rise 2%, seasonally adjusted, a 13.2% increase year-on-year.
Australia is paving the way for the continued success of the online retail industry. However, that being said, the bricks and mortar concept hasn’t died out; rather, Australia is seeing a strengthening combination of both digital and bricks and mortar. These pillars of our industry are leading us into the future of retail.
Customers today are driven by emotions and are looking for immersive experiences. They like convenience, hashtags, video content and seamless experiences. They want these experiences all at once, regardless of the channel in which they are in.
These customers are called MILLENNIALS. They are young, they are social, and their phone is their best friend. They don’t talk, they tweet. They don’t call, they text. If you want to catch their attention, you have to do it quick, and you have to make it sharable.
Building on the strength and success of the original and most established retail event in Australia, Online Retailer Sydney returns with its best lineup yet! If you want to be the best at what you do then you need to learn from the best – and that’s exactly who we have joining us in 2016.
