The Panel Description:  Clash of the Titans

Sides have been picked and all contestants are “suited up” for the fight. In the red corner are the Internet challengers led by Apple, Google, Amazon, eBay and Facebook, and in the blue corner are the brick and mortar current champions led by Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot and Costco. While the Internet challengers had been throwing the initial punches, a counterattack, and perhaps more, has been launched. Each side is now behind enemy lines as some Internet operators have opened brick and mortar stores while more and more brick and mortar operators are enhancing their offerings with a variety of Internet and social media initiatives. This fast-paced panel of industry experts will discuss the likely future scenarios between the Internet and the brick and mortar contestants and how the various participants will seek to enhance and grow their models through a combination of virtual and actual physical forays. Lastly, the panelists will suggest the likely future winners on each side. Don’t miss this panel if you want to better understand the impact of the intersection of brick and mortar and virtual retail.
