The rise of ecommerce will bring with it a diversification of distribution channels, for example, in the restaurant and hotel sector more and more businesses will resort to take away and home deliveries. Other sectors that will join these trends are food and telemedicine.

Although the marketplaces have become the main place where the user seeks information about the product, showrooms will become the new offline shopping format. The consumer will be able to see the products, in temporary or permanent "exhibition" stores, but the purchase will have to be made online. This way, agglomerations are avoided and the shopping experience is much more exclusive and personalized.
