And which technologies will you be banking on in 2020?

Virtual reality, robots, cashless checkout, digital receipts - there is a lot going on in the retail technology industry.

One of the questions we asked ourselves was: What can be achieved by using augmented and virtual realities? "Even small retail spaces can be transformed into a megastore with the help of AR and VR solutions, turning them into an experience for the customer," answers Kelly Goetsch from commercetools GmbH.

Looking forward to a progressive year 2020,

Your team of EuroCIS
