The 4th World Retail Congress Asia Pacific returns to Singapore for the second time with an in-depth focus on the new era in Asia retailing. The Congress will run from Monday 24th to Thursday 27th March 2014 at Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore. 

WRC is delighted to confirm leading executives from distinguished multi-national and regional retailers, including Gap, Walmart, Zalora.com, Tesco, SPAR International, NTUC Fairprice Co-operative and Courts, amongst many others.

It is the only event of its kind that unites leading regional and international retailers to provide a global perspective on the challenges and innovations pertinent to the Pan-Asian retail market.

During the 2014 Congress, retail leaders will share their insights on retail trends and opportunities in Asia Pacific.  Key headline speakers for this year’s event include:

- Scott Price, CEO and President, Walmart Asia
- John Spelich, Group Vice President, Alibaba
- Kesri Kapur, Group CEO, RSH Singapore Ltd
- Redmond Yeong, Vice Chairman, Gap Greater China
- Kian Peng Seah, NTUC Fairprice International
- Gordon Campbell, CEO, SPAR International
- Dean Thompson, MD, Boots International
- Terry O’Connor, Group CEO, Courts Asia
- Harry Markl, Regional MD, Zalora
- Simon Calver, CEO, Mothercare
- Sarah O’Donnell, CEO, Seibu Enterprise Company

In response to an overwhelming interest in China, the Congress is holding an exclusive one-day ‘Exploring China Focus Day’ on Monday 24th March. 

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.
