The Weekly Scale: June 21st, 2021

This week at MarketScale, we held a major press conference on the future of retail, hosted a true legend of education, and examined what “retailtainment” will look like in 2022. That’s making my wallet cringe.

Break out the ice chests for the dog days of summer— it’s time to scale up.

Walmart launched big news this week and MarketScale had the inside track.

Retail giant Walmart recently announced a partnership with DroneUp intended to make it the premier retailer for drone deliveries and host of Drones in America joined our press conference to discuss how this puts a very real timeline on drone deliveries at scale.

Did you catch the latest installment of The Product Drop, suffice to say we were big fans.

Shain Wainscot of Portacool joined me on set as dove into what inspired their Jetstream 250 fan and why they keep American manufacturing at the center of what they do.

what is being done to reimagine the next decade of education?

Well to help answer that our very own JW Marshall, will be sitting down with EdTech legend Sal Khan of the one and only Khan Academy this Thursday! Make sure you don’t miss this incredible interview where they will be joined by AT&T’s Mylayna Albright to address what the biggest silver linings of COVID will be for EdTech.

Data collection and analysis are the lifeblood of modern organizations — and harsh edge environments can’t get in the way of actionable insights.

The Rugged Edge Survival Guide by Premio had a major live event this week that brought several key note speakers to address what your organization needs to keep in mind for XXX.

Is the future of hotels, modular? The MarketScale Hospitality Roundtable is back and, this time, we are exploring what the biggest strategy shifts will be.

The panel will include:

Liz Gilbert, Gettin Local

Michael Merle, Guerdon

James Larounis, Upgraded Points

Make sure to follow along for future roundtables. On Monday, June 28th, we will be diving into how automation is charting a new course for aerospace.

I’ll be back next Monday for The Weekly Scale but, until then, if you know of a story that you want us to cover, let us know with the hashtag B2BNeverSleeps.
