DETAILS:   WD Partners, a customer experience expert for global brands, will share key insights about what an in-store shopping experience can offer that online shopping can't at the National Retail Federation's 103rd Annual Convention and Expo in New York City next week.

Lee Peterson, executive vice president of creative services at WD Partners, will look at what consumers want in a shopping experience and present a roadmap for physical stores to beat online retailers in his presentation, Even Amazon Can't Do This…Yet. His presentation is based on a recent white paper by WD Partners, "Amazon Can't Do That: Consumer Desire & the Store of the Future.

"Human beings are, and will always be, socially driven," said Peterson. "It's time for retailers – at least those that want to survive the coming rationalization the industry faces – to invest in the one asset online can never trump – people."

At WD Partners, Peterson leads a group of more than one hundred researchers, retail designers, and digital specialists developing retail innovations for such clients as Walmart, Gatorade, Best Buy, Safeway, Scotts, Huntington Bank and Frito-Lay. His opinions have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes, and on American Public Media's "Marketplace," as well as in the retail and design trade media. He is currently serving on the editorial board of VM+SD, and the BrainTrust at RetailWire.com.
