NEW YORK, May 22, 2012 - Nolcha Fashion Week proudly announces a partnership with the World Retail Congress taking place September 19th - 21st in London. The World Retail Congress, now entering its sixth year, is the pre-eminent meeting place for retail leaders from across the globe. Uniting retail CEOs the Congress provides critical context, new ideas and challenges conventional thinking. It brings together over 1000 senior executives from the global retail industry. Speakers include leading retailers and visionaries, in over 40 interactive business streams, keynotes and executive roundtables.
The 2012 annual meeting of the World Retail Congress in London will deliver a programme that helps the global retail industry understand how they need to re-shape and re-focus their businesses in the light of continuing economic uncertainty combined with major consumer change brought about by the technological revolution.
Retailers across the world, both from mature and emerging markets, are aware that these conditions will change the shape of retailing completely but that they have to seize this challenge now in order to be a future winner. As borne out by World Retail Congress research, Change and Growth will therefore figure strongly in the 2012 agenda.
