It will provide a common ground where international and national retailers, manufacturers, distributors congregate every year to boost trade and deliberate on the key concerns of the industry, opportunities therein, creating partnerships and addressing challenges."

The event supported by prominent associations such Retailers Association of India (RAI) and Franchising Association of India (FAI) hosted Business Reboot; a   business transformation seminar on strategies and insights for the untapped and expanding US $ 11.12 billion child and baby care product industry.
