July 8, 2016 – Mi9 Retail, a premier provider of enterprise retail solutions, announced the keynote speakers for its annual customer conference, Synergy 2016.  The event is taking place on September 14-16 at The W South Beach Hotel in Miami, Florida.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, “Generation Z” is now the largest demographic in America and represents 1 in 4 Americans.  For years, retailers have strategized about how to engage with and capture the mindset of the Millennials, the most researched group ever, and now everything they have learned is turned upside down with Generation Z.

Paula Levy and Jerry Inman of Demand Worldwide will deliver thought-provoking insight into Generation Z in their keynote session entitled “The Retail Rebels – Who Will Conquer the Connected Consumer”.  They will explore how today’s retailers must collaborate, communicate and connect with the next generation of shoppers (and employees) because they are definitely different.  Attendees will discover what it takes to be a “Retail Rebel” and what has to change to capture this new shopper and their abundant influence on today’s retail industry.
