Here at Qubit we work with some of the leading eGaming operators, and so we were very proud to have this recognised at the EGR B2B Awards on Tuesday (6th June 2017).
No longer just science fiction, artificial intelligence could be the key to future retail success, as our latest research with Retail Week reveals. Read on to learn three reasons why from our CEO, Graham Cooke.
Our latest research, launched in April at our Catalysts of Change event, explores the technologies transforming retail. And who better to ask than retailers themselves?
On April 4th we hosted over 150 retailers here in London at our inaugural Catalysts of Change event to launch our latest research in partnership with Retail Week. Featuring insights from over 70 retail executives on the technologies set to transform retail, the morning was a great chance to delve into the findings as well as hear perspectives from our diverse range of speakers. Here we've pulled together the key take-aways from Westfield, Grabble, Tesco and our panel (and stay tuned for video content coming very soon!).
At our upcoming Catalysts of Change event, in partnership with Retail Week, we'll be launching our latest research featuring comment from over 70 retail executives on how they see technology impacting the future of the industry. We'll explore how disruptive technologies are changing consumer behaviour, but also providing new opportunities for retailers to understand and engage with their customers.
Following their recent win for best in-house product at the EGR Operator awards, Dublin-based innovator BetBright have put ‘understanding and influencing’ their customers at the heart of their strategy for 2017.
Black Friday and Cyber Weekend generated plenty of headline grabbing stats as usual, and in spite of the yearly claims that the discount holiday is greying out. John Lewis, who previously spoke out against the discount day, reported its best ever weekly revenues of nearly £200m (Guardian, November 2016).

While planning has already been going on for months, it's always worth double-checking your list to make sure you're not missing a trick. From UX, to mobile, to delivery, we touch on six ways retailers can ensure they’re paying attention to the trends that matter to make the most of peak 2016 and beyond!
To say that change is the only constant is somewhat of a cliché, but this is what has come to define retail in 2016, particularly when it comes to peak. The past few years have seen disruption after disruption to the traditional peak shopping periods, driven by changes in consumer behaviour and, in response to this, the rise of new ‘mega’ shopping holidays.
As creepy clowns dominate the headlines and my email inbox fills up with pumpkins and ghouls it can only mean one thing — this is Halloween.
It seems like every retailer out there is trying to jump on the Halloween ghost train, and it’s no wonder, with the NRF annual survey predicting spend in 2016 will hit $8.4bn, the highest in the survey’s history. Even in the UK, where Halloween has always played second fiddle to the more traditional Bonfire Night, Halloween is the new holiday to back for retailers, now the second biggest party night after New Years Eve (Guardian, October 2015).
