Event Recap: Innovation Through Time at Casa Batlló


On June 3, Valtech co-hosted our own intimate event, Innovation Through Time, on the first evening of Shoptalk Europe at the iconic Casa Batlló.

Pascal and Lukas Rose, Head of Strategy and Partner at Valtech RADON, began the evening with a pair of talks on how retailers can cut through the noise and focus on what matters. 

Marie Masselot, Group Product Manager at Ocado, gave us a great overview of how that company has productized their Retail Media Platform.

Afterward, Ashkhen Zakaryan, Valtech VP of Global Strategic Alliances, hosted a panel discussion around the key opportunities and challenges in retail this year. Panel members included:

  • Sven van Hegelsom, Customer Value Director at commercetools
  • Charlie Bell, Senior Director of Solution Engineering at Contentful
  • Solène Le Saout, Head of Partnerships EMEA at Algolia
  • Tal Ofer, Channel and Alliances Director at Cloudinary

After a long day, guests were excited to hear panel members talk shop — how customer behaviors are changing, how technology can connect in-store and online experiences in a way that drives customer engagement, the emerging role of AI — in a cozy setting.

Turnout exceeded our expectations, too. “I heard from a few people, ‘I was planning to be elsewhere tonight, but someone said Valtech is hosting an event at Casa Batlló, and we had to be there,’” Ashkhen said.

We were honored to host our guests. The venue was dreamy and delivered an event that inspired us, our speakers and our guests.

We all appreciated having that moment to look at the biggest trends in retail, critically analyze them, and identify what actionable insights we all needed to bring back to our teams, our clients and our partners.
