Retail Congress Africa
In November 2013, the first Retail Congress Africa brought together Pan-African and international retail stakeholders to discuss the bright future everyone is talking about. Over 300 of the most senior retail professionals met to understand the opportunities, explore growth strategies and assess how best to reach the savvy new consumers of Africa.
As we look towards 2014, the 2nd Retail Congress Africa will build on its success, providing deeper insight into the African retail opportunities and challenges. Once again, the retail industry will give their input, the entire value chain of the global ecosystem will be represented and the industry will once again have the chance to shape and define its future.
The only platform to discuss the future of the pan-African retail industry.
