"The store of the future": UTC Reading hosts IET talk

UTC Reading recently hosted an IET talk delivered by Sultan Noori, an expert in retail technology and founder of Tabaq.

Technology is drastically changing the way we shop, making bricks and mortar stores a thing of the past in some areas. Sultan explained the influence of disruptive technologies and what they do to our shopping experience.

Online shopping is continually increasing and grabbing more and more of a share in the market, leaving our high streets vast expanses of unused, decaying retail space. Sultan discussed whether these trends are set to continue and what can be done to work against them.

Sultan's company, Tabaq, works with major retail organisations to design the entire shopping experience for the end customer. If you are interested in this subject and want to find out more, UTC Reading is hosting a Shopify meetup on Wednesday 12 July, 6.30-9.30pm. Sign up online and come along to find out more.
