Shoppers don’t want “digital” experiences.

They want smooth, enjoyable and delightful experiences.

Tech is playing an exciting role in facilitating shopping experiences; however, the worlds of retail and tech have traditionally been separate, making it harder for developers and retailers to truly understand each other’s needs.

Therefore, the Garden Gathering is a community-driven project that aims to provide a platform for retailers, brands, designers, and retail/fashion tech developers to meet and share their findings, solutions and dreams of a better world.

So join us for the inaugural retail-tech Garden Gathering!
