business news in context, analysis with attitude

Prepare to be dazzled. This Retail Tomorrow podcast comes from the annual South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas, and features a provocative look at the changing shape of retailing, a discussion of why retailers should target being “fluid” rather than “frictionless,” and how a new definition of experiential marketing can be a literal game changer for retail.

Our guests:

• Amber Allen, founder/CEO/Chief Strategist at Double A Labs;

• Becky Banasik, VP of merchant success at DOSH;

• Marie Chevrier, founder/CEO of Sampler;

• and Nancy Giordano, the strategic futurist who created Play Big Inc.
