NRF Retail’s Big Show Asia Pacific is to be held in Singapore in June next year and will discuss relevant topics like AI, CX, futureproofing and more.
The National Retail Federation and Comexposium have joined forces to present NRF 2024: Retail’s Big Show Asia Pacific edition, set to take place from 11 – 13 June, 2024, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore.
“NRF is expanding the footprint of Retail’s Big Show to Asia Pacific, one of the world’s fastest growing retail markets,” NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said. “The show will feature the latest innovations from the in-store experience, supply chain, loss prevention and asset protection to merchandising and immersive technologies. This inaugural event will bring together Asia’s most dynamic industry leaders to create global partnerships spanning the entire retail industry.”
The Asia Pacific event was announced early this year at NRF 2023: Retail’s Big Show in New York City and is expected to draw thousands of retailers and business partners regionally. The new addition to the Big Show lineup has garnered the support of retailer associations from a variety of countries across the Asia Pacific region, including Australia, Mainland China, Europe, Indonesia, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.
“The Asia Pacific region is diverse but also linked by common themes and challenges. To ensure content delivery that responds to this, the conference program draws on the advice and counsel of retail leaders across the Asia Pacific region, both from the industry and retail community,” NRF 2024: Retail’s Big Show Asia Pacific Project Director Ryf Quail said.
“The program features an array of content celebrating successes, new opportunities in retail, exploring the technologies that are transforming the industry whilst addressing the challenges that Asia Pacific retailers are facing every day.”
The main conference covers topics and trends such as AI and machine learning, customer experience, digital transformation, first-party data, de-risking supply chains, futureproofing through tough economic times, high retail costs, payment flexibility, retail crimes and thefts, and personalisation as well as sustainability and ethical Practices.
Online registration for the main conference is now open for individuals and groups.
