Walmart & Sam's Club Workshop

2-3 Nov 2016 Bentonville, AR

Event Overview

After more than a year of inventory pressure, relentless demands on suppliers to “put it all into price,” and limiting opportunities for merchandising collaboration, the stalwart order of the productivity loop has begun to re-emerge at Walmart. At the same time, Sam’s faces fresh struggles with growing competition and a sluggish member base.

Join Kantar Retail to help you understand:

  • How Walmart’s return to Rollbacks and in-store marketing will impact suppliers’ 2017 sales plans
  • Implications from Walmart’s capital expenditure goals for 2017 — particularly when it comes to deploying a new Supercenter prototype and expanding Neighborhood Market
  • How the Walmart shopper’s demographics, attitudes, and behaviors continue to evolve
  • How the Sam’s Club “club of the future” and member segmentation strategy are shaping the club’s merchandising and assortment decisions

You’ll walk away from this Workshop with insight into:

  • How to prepare for the impact of Walmart’s renewed price investment on your volume
  • The new strategies you’ll need to craft a defense against the incursion of private label
  • Re-emerging merchandising opportunities to partner with Walmart
  • Ways to marshal your resources against Walmart, particularly when it comes to people, functions, and data investments
  • How to align with Sam’s Club’s tighter approach to the club model and member personalization strategies
