With Dr Kai Hudetz, we will fulfill a request from 2013’s participants: making the changes and challenges in the world of retail a focus of this year’s European Outdoor Summit. At Lake Tegernsee, this subject will be covered by an acknowledged expert.

On 15th October, Dr Kai Hudetz, CEO of the Institut für Handelsforschung (Institute of Retail Research - IFH), will present the latest research findings on trends and developments in retailing.  

“The Future of Retail - Key Success Factors & Upcoming Trends to 2020” is how Dr Hudetz describes his keynote speech during the summit. His research in retail issues is unparalleled and his consultancy experience across various different sectors adds great credibility, weight and depth to his words.
