Retail Rebooted

September 23, 2019



Safinah Ballroom, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai

About the Event

Many large retailers have gone through challenges in the last year as the growth of e-commerce reduces footfall. But with new technology comes new consumer data and a wealth of new information to learn from. Building on the concept of delivering experiences to entice shoppers into the region’s many malls, while building online platforms that can stand up to global competition, the retail industry’s leaders are learning to innovate. Our first retail event will gather stakeholders, experts and commentators to discuss these issues and draw on their insight into the challenges being faced and the opportunities being built on for the future.
