This sponsored post is produced by Street Fight.

The next five years of retail will see more radical transformation than has taken place in the last 150. Businesses will capture more data on their customers and learn more about what happens in their stores, as a result, they will revamp their strategies to integrate commerce and connection with consumers in powerful ways.

Next month at the third annual Street Fight Summit West in San Francisco, leaders in this transformation, such as Facebook, PayPal, Shopkick, and Google, will discuss the technologies and market developments that shape the road ahead for local businesses and their relationships with consumers. This year’s theme, “The Future of Local Tech,” will put a sharp focus on the connected consumer and the platforms and devices that will more strongly link businesses and their customers.

Flickr Co-Founder Caterina Fake will be there. So will Ted Zagat. More companies speaking, sponsoring, and attending include Tesla, Samsung, Airbnb, Twitter, Microsoft, Yext and more. Topics on the agenda span from “Using Mobile to Connect Content and Commerce” to “Local Data and Retail: Rethinking the Store of the Future,” and “Investing in Hyperlocal Companies: Where’s the Big Growth?” Click here for the full program.

Street Fight shapes the conversation in hyperlocal marketing and tech on a daily basis through its website and morning roundup newsletter, “Street Fight Daily.” The event on June 3rd will host dynamic sessions onstage as well as ample networking opportunities. The day will be capped by a cocktail reception, followed by a “Closing Party” bash by Bing at the Bubble Lounge.
