Keynote - John Boumphrey, UK Country Manager, Amazon
From drones to healthcare, from AI to sustainable packaging, Amazon is committed to being at the forefront of our retail future. Since its inception in 1994 as online book seller, the global giant has evolved beyond all recognition, with a worldwide ecosystem of more than 200 million Prime members. In the UK, its stellar results speak for themselves; revenue has grown by 82% over the two-year post pandemic period. We welcome Amazon UK MD John Boumphrey to the stage, where he'll discuss innovation, growth, and his perspective on both the positive and negative headlines that arise from being one of the most commonly recognised retail brands.
