Leading retailers from Alibaba Group, MCM Worldwide, Coats, Affinity, VF Corporation and key industry observer James Roy of China Market Research Group will be sharing invaluable perspectives on China’s retail landscape and exchanging corporate strategies with the audience. The forum will include sessions on the evolution of Chinese malls and hypermarkets and the future of multi-channel retail in China, amongst many others.
This year’s Congress will also include an Asia growth markets focus. With a growing middle class, uneven liberalizing regulatory landscape, and varied developmental stages, the Congress will cut straight to the heart of the challenges faced by regional retail leaders in six key markets: Indonesia, India, Japan, Korea, The Philippines, and Malaysia.
Alongside the new market insights, statistics and research that will be unveiled at the Congress, other key themes include supply chain innovation, effective retail marketing, leadership strategies and the future of retail banking in Asia Pacific.
