Cristina Elson,
Senior Specialist at the
Barcelona Virtual Innovation Lab.

"Traditional Retail,
as we understand it today,
is doomed to disappear.

Unless we can offer the consumer
something that they will never,
never find in e-Commerce.

And what’s that?
A unique, exciting, surprising experience!"

~ Cristina Elson
