TXT Retail, which offers PLM solutions for the luxury and fashion sectors, is organising Thinking Retail, Europe’s top event for luxury and fashion brands and retailers in Paris on March 19th.

Thinking Retail will revolve on the seamless integration of Planning, PLM and Supply Chain Management to help retailers respond to multichannel shoppers, create assortments and optimise inventory investments.

“The conference will include presentations from leading retailers like Miroglio, Pandora and Sephora, key global players in fast fashion, jewellery, perfume and cosmetics,” TXT said in a press release.

They will share their experiences and highlight best practices in global planning projects and event is being held in association with Microsoft and consulting firms Viseo and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Thought-leader George Lawrie, Forrester vice president and principal analyst, will deliver the keynote speech.

“Planning for the multichannel shopper has created new challenges and calls for new rules, business models and supporting technologies,” states Peter Charness, chief marketing officer at TXT Retail.

He added, “At the event, we will discuss how the end-to-end integration of planning, merchandising, design and sourcing helps today’s retailers better understand cross-channel demand.

“This ultimately transfers back that insight to all levels of the value-chain for fast, effective innovation, assortment, and inventory decisions,” he noted.

In his keynote speech, Forrester VP George Lawrie will analyse the global trends in Assortment Planning and will provide the models and benchmarks.

“This will help delegates understand where they are along their journey and key actions to take, underpinned by research and real-life case studies,” TXT Retail informed.

Lawrie will also moderate an interactive roundtable under the theme titled, ‘Planning the perfect assortment in design-driven organisations’.

Peter Charness notes that Thinking Retail Paris has become the reference industry event for retailers and brands focused on merchandise and assortment planning, PLM and supply chain.

“Typical attendance of over 150 delegates is a ‘who’s who’ of the most exclusive names in European and American apparel, luxury and specialty retail,” he observed.
