Retail Congress Africa launched in 2013. As the first of its kind on the continent, it brought together more than 270 of the most senior retail executives operating in the Pan African region, as well as game changing international leaders. In 2015 it continues its promise to provide a dynamic platform for discussion on the critical trends and opportunities in retail across the continent.
This year it welcomes a range of new themes, features and formats to help you connect with likeminded peers and take home valuable insights to inform your future strategy. Dedicated to exploring new trends and tendencies of the market, Retail Congress’ theme for 2015 has been defined as: ‘Driving the pillars of growth: Expansion, Innovation, Operational Excellence and Consumer Knowledge’.
The Congress will feature in-depth discussions on key areas for growth such as progressing into new markets, updating mobile and online capabilities and understanding how to connect with new consumer groups who have more discretionary income at their disposal.
Taking place at the luxurious Westin Hotel in the vibrant city of Cape Town, sessions will be challenging, powerful and provide actionable outcomes. Each speaker on this year’s programme aims to share, inspire and push for innovation. Retail Congress Africa 2015 will bring together 300+ of the most senior members from both domestic and international retailer businesses. It provides an invaluable opportunity to share ideas, be inspired by 50+ expert speakers and network with those directing the future of the industry. Africa is the retail growth market of the future with still unexploited opportunities for first-movers. Attendance at the Congress will provide you with revolutionary strategies to reach the new African customer.
