Organiser: World Retail Congress

The 2013 World Retail Congress is your chance to engage with and learn from those steering the world\'s leading retail businesses. Recognised as the pre-eminent meeting place in the retail calendar, over the last six years the Congress has brought together over 6,200 of the industry\'s most influential business leaders and decision makers to challenge current thinking, unveil the latest innovations and shape the direction of retail. A congregation of the top retailers from across the globe. The World Retail Congress provides the critical context, new ideas and challenging thinking for senior retailers to understand the \"new retailing\" that is about to emerge from the global recession. Following extensive consultation with the Congress\'s Advisory Board and retailers around the world, the programme addresses the essential issues pre-occupying retail boardroom agendas with incisive keynote sessions through to in-depth discussions in the focussed business streams. A full programme of thought-leadership studies designed to provide greater insight for retailers forms a centre-piece of presentations at the Congress. The highly acclaimed Retail Futures Challenge will be expanded with more retail colleges from around the world sending their brightest and best retail students to London for Congress delegates to select the winning team. Taking place in a key retail hub and one of Europe\'s most dynamic and important capital cities, delegates will be able to enjoy a hosted Retail Study Tour as well as receptions and key networking events in the heart of the city. It promises to be one of the most important gatherings of the world\'s best retailers at a critical time for the industry.
