Mary Portas - InventCommerce and Google Retail event

‘Thought provoking’, ‘insightful’, ‘interesting’ and ‘superb evening’ are just a few of the comments from retailers who attended the recent InventCommerce & Google event. 


Google’s head office was the place to be on Wednesday evening as 200 senior executives of leading high street retailers gathered for an evening with Mary Portas ‘Queen of shops’, Google’s Head of Retail Peter Fitzgerald and InventCommerce, to discuss all things retail & search.


Peter Fitzgerald - InventCommerce and Google Retail event


This special evening brought together leading retailers to hear Mary Portas deliver a fantastic talk sharing  her experiences with the retail high street decline. She spoke about her challenging debates with local councils and retailers as she endeavours to support the local community by rejuvenating the town centres and the Portas Pilot programme. It was not only a thoroughly interesting insight around Mary’s experiences but also somewhat inspiring when seeing the videos of so many proud residents desperate to bring life back into their communities.

The evening was brought a close by the InventCommerce & Google team demonstration as to the power of the Google Commerce Search solution and how within one day you can deliver Search-as-You-Type on your ecommerce site to power conversion in time for Christmas trading, now that’s innovation!
