Online marketplaces – the future of retail?

The Tofugear Booth (powered by Microsoft)


This year we have a bigger and better booth and we’re partnering with our buddies at Microsoft. Located within Hall 3FG, you can find us at G23 where we’ll showcase a unique demo of the Store of the Future and the opportunities it could unlock for your business. Come join us for a coffee and click here to book a private demo with one of our team members.

Trend Trail



Located at the entrance, this walk-through exhibition highlights this year’s leading consumer solutions. It’s a great way to start your journey as we’ll be debuting Tofugear’s new blockchain technology solution, which keeps the customer front of mind for all anti-counterfeiting scenarios.




The Tofugear trio – Carson McKelvey (CXO), Philip Wiggenraad (Head of Research) and Tiffany Lung (Retail Analyst) – will be taking to the stage from Day 1 to Day 3.  At the separate Retail Asia Conference event (paid registrants only), Philip will share insights from Tofugear’s digital transformation survey, in which 150 Asian retailers took part. This will be followed by Caron’s panel with leading industry-experts, in which he’ll have a fireside chat on their perspectives of the results of our survey and what’s next for Asian retailers. And of course, Tiffany is back with another live focus group panel but after some #MillennialFixationFatigue, this time round she’ll be focusing on Gen Z consumers.
