If a Euro Area member defaults on sovereign debt: Banks that have supported that member lose their shirts Lenders panic, “contagion” spreads across the world Business is paralysed, confidence plummets Nations that have contributed to bailouts lose money Stored “paper” wealth is annihilated on a vast scale New Credit Crunch for governments and businesses, as lenders flee from risk Social unrest as wages and benefits go unpaid Inflation, as QE is used to erode the value of debt The value of the Euro crashes Rampaging trolls descend from hills Recession – a really bad one this time If disaster is averted: Same, only less so (ie: fewer trolls, with smaller clubs)

43 © IGD 2012 Online – A Period Of Explosive Development Online retailing, for groceries and non- groceries is growing rapidly across Europe The UK is perhaps the most advanced European market but, even so, still offers lots of headroom for further growth The migration of trade to the online environment increases market transparency and thus price competition The growth of online may, in time, change the character of town centres If shoppers switch, say, 10% of their trips to online, what would the footfall impact for traditional retailers be? Online – Potential to change the nature of relationships between shoppers and businesses Image: February 2012

44 © IGD 2012 The New Digital Battleground The technological base for a digital retail revolution have been in place for a while However, the smartphone may prove to be the “killer” technology Smartphones combine the power of the Internet with the freedom of a mobile In particular, the smartphone is a “personal” technology unlike, say, a desktop PC Retailers are investing heavily in this technology but are only scratching the surface Given the pace of change, 2012 could be the year the smartphone comes of age Next step … “augmented reality”? Currently, digital media is being used primarily as “remote control” for consumption Long term, the bigger prize may be the opportunity to build relationships / community Consider – businesses now ask shoppers to “be their Friends” on Facebook Being “friends” means that businesses can build personal dialogues with customers However, new technologies also offer pitfalls Increased market transparency pushes the pace of price competition If technology allows shoppers to be more agile, the penalty for loss of trust is higher Image: February 2012
