For Klépierre, early adopter of Vivatech, this event is a great opportunity to enrich its open innovation strategy and a stepping stone to meet startups. Vivatech is proving to be a breeding ground for new ideas and trends to find the retail solutions of tomorrow.
Indeed, the individual must adapt to new technologies as well as the retail to stay aligned with consumer expectations. Our role is also to support the brands and to include them in our challenges. To succeed, innovation must be co-constructed with retailers and co-created with end customers.
Working with startups also means choosing new working methods, test & learn and agility. It is to make our shopping centers places of experimentation for new ideas. This is how Klépierre reinvents itself and thinks the physical retail of tomorrow in a seamless experience for the customer.
At Vivatech, we launch pitch contests every year on Klépierre ID, our digital innovation platform, to find new startups with whom to collaborate.
