The only platform to discuss the future of the pan-African retail industry.
Thank you for attending Retail Congress Africa 2014
The 2nd Annual Retail Congress Africa has now concluded. The Congress brought together senior retail leaders and industry experts from throughout the region and across the globe.
It’s an exciting time for retail in Sub-Saharan Africa as it is one of the fastest growing economic regions in the world. In the past year we have witnessed Nigeria rebase its gross domestic product (GDP) data to push it above South Africa, so is now the continent’s biggest economy.
Admittedly African growth markets hold a number of challenges for retailers. The Congress not only addressed the opportunities for retailers, but also flagged up the key risks and through case studies uncovered innovative solutions and best practices. Over 50 leading retail experts including Pick n Pay, Mr Price, Landmark Group, L’Oreal, MasterCard, Konga, Zando, BHS, the Walt Disney Company, McDonald’s and Nakumatt shared their experiences and challenges with delegates.
We would like to thank all our speakers, delegates, sponsors, exhibitors and members of the international retail media for their on-going support. We look forward to working with you over the next year and welcoming you again in 2015.
