SMG is BACK with the next webinar in the Talking Shop series

After the success of our first webinar, “Mastering retail media with Boots Media Group: A deep dive into the fundamentals”, we’re looking ahead to the next installment of the series where we’ll shine a light on our award-winning commerce marketing agency Capture to discuss how brands can make the most out of the RMNs that they work with.

In case you missed it, we announced at the start of the year our newly launched webinar series, Talking Shop. 

Talking Shop is a free, easy-to-digest, quarterly webinar series that shines a light on the best in the industry and their inspiring stories. Whether it’s a panel, digital fireside chat, or a jointly delivered presentation, we’ll provide bite-sized takeaways to help you implement tried and tested strategies that we know from experience, work for the brand, the retailer, and most importantly, the customer.

What can I expect from the next webinar of the series?

With Retail Media set to become a $100bn industry by 2027 and brands working with more RMNs than ever, it's becoming increasingly complex for FMCGs to understand where they should spend their hard-earned cash and why.

We’ll be covering:

  • The total size of the retail media prize and the key players within the space

  • The biggest opportunities and challenges for brands 

  • A look at how brands can get the most out of the networks they work with

  • Our recommended ways of working for brands as our industry continues to evolve
