Returning in April, the Retail Leaders Forum arrives at a critical juncture for the nation’s Retail community.

The industry has responded emphatically to the unprecedented challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, as consumer confidence builds and our operating environment begins to correct, Retail executives are accountable for securing opportunities emerging from the upturn economy.

The Forum secures national and global speakers of immense authority to arm attendees to succeed in this undertaking.

Why Attend?
• The Retail Leaders Forum secures national and global speakers of unmatched quality and immense authority. Our attendees are charged with shaping the conversation, armed with an array of real-time engagement tools.
• Every session is independently moderated to facilitate candid discussion and debate, and the programme is designed to provide attendees with valuable opportunities to connect in-person on the business that matters.
