French Tech Lounge

  • French Tech Lounge

    The retail industry is facing major challenges that are reshuffling the balance between physical and online retail. Customers are always looking for the best service vs. quality ratio and require a more personalised and unified customer experience wherever they are, for whenever they want.

    Emerging technologies such as virtual reality (VR), machine learning and chatbots that are based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data science, offer many opportunities to meet these challenges.

    French startups understand what is at stake and are developing innovative solutions to help retailers succeed in their new omnichannel journey.

    Business France will be showcasing the best French RetailTech startups at the RetailEXPO.
