Walmart & Sam's Club Workshop

5-6 Apr 2016 Bentonville, AR

Event Overview

Creating seamless relationships across the Walmart & Sam’s Club spectrum

Event Start: 8:30 a.m.
Event Conclusion: 4:30 p.m. 

While Walmart has committed to building its long-term relevance with shoppers, the retailer’s ultimate aim is to create seamless relationships across its spectrum of formats, from brick-and-mortar to digital. In fact, more than half of Walmart’s incremental sales growth through 2020 will come from Neighborhood Market and online. With such fast-moving change, suppliers will face imminent demands around profits, capabilities, and alignment.

Join Kantar Retail to help you understand:

  • Walmart’s plans to improve the shopping experience across its spectrum of formats, from the Supercenter to Neighborhood Market
    to online
  • How Walmart aims to integrate digital tools and the store to deepen relationships with shoppers
  • Neighborhood Market’s growth path and latest direction as Walmart optimizes the format
  •  Sam’s Club’s ongoing efforts to turn around its business and return to healthy growth

You’ll walk away from this Workshop with:

  • Forecasts for Walmart’s store expansion and sales growth heading into the end of the decade
  • Insights into where Walmart is investing to drive relevance and what
    the retailer will demand from suppliers as investments continue to pressure profits
  • Understanding of the extent, purpose, and plausibility of Sam’s current member and merchandise evolution through 2020
