Phew! Here at RIS we are closing the door to what was a very busy year for retail news, and are excited to see what the 2020 retail landscape will roll out.
The editors of RIS work hard all year long to bring you the top research, information, and reports that we hope help you drive your business and technology decisions throughout each year.
And this year we saw some BIG changes. RIS went all digital, retiring our print issue and focusing on perfecting our digital content. While this may have brought a tear to a few eyes, we recognize the future is digital and RIS is committed to providing you content you want to consume, the way you want to consume it. Which is why, with this change also came the launch of our Experiential Content, reports that combine graphic display, animation, interactivity and embedded media to help us better connect to you, the readers.
In addition, this year RIS took home the Folio: Eddie & Ozzie award for best B2B Website (Retail) for the second year in a row. We couldn’t be more proud that our meticulous switch to digital has been recognized as best in the business. In addition, RIS received an honorable mention in the B2B Immersive/Interactive Storytelling category for our first product in our new Experiential Content format: “8 Evolving Shopper Trends You Need to Know Now.”
We are so eager to bring you our next innovations in retail reporting in 2020, but as the year comes to an end, RIS takes a look back at the top-read research and reports of 2019 that can still provide you with important insights today to shape your path into tomorrow.
