Retail Congress Asia Pacific delivers fresh, usable insights and predictions into the dynamic Asian retail landscape. On 12-13 October, 2016 leading retail experts will unite and share their knowledge of this ever-changing industry.
The theme for this year’s Congress is ‘The evolution of retail in Asia-Pacific: innovation and disruption’. It brings together all of the key issues facing retailers across this large and vitally important region. Senior retailers have expressed how they are grappling with the challenges of tough economic conditions and a growing acceptance by consumers to move online.
As in most other parts of the global retail industry, businesses are having to adjust to the same forces shaping consumer behaviour. However in Asia, the scale and speed of mobile adoption and use of social media are unprecedented.
Over two days, we will hear from some outstanding regional and international retail leaders as well as senior executives from leading corporations who are helping to reshape the industry. Completing the line-up are economic experts and a selection of exciting new, disruptive businesses captivating the next generation of shoppers.
Confirmed speakers to date include executives from Alibaba, Google, Carrefour, Lazada, IKEA, Robinsons, LVMH, Zalora and NTUC Fairprice Co-operative, Nike and Love, Bonito.
The speakers will try to pinpoint the strategies needed to stay successful in this complex industry. They will consider where the opportunities are for growth and investment to provide a clearer idea of the direction Asia-Pacific’s retail market is heading.
Located in Malaysia’s retail and fashion hub, Kuala Lumpur, the Congress will equip you with the knowledge of how to captivate the next generation of shoppers and preempt their buying patterns.
