It’s so rare to get so many people from different backgrounds, different cultures, different parts of the retail world all in one place at the same time and the conversation you have, whether its over a croissant or whether its over a glass of champagne, are just gold-dust. So that networking and finding out what is really going on from peers around the industry is the reason to come.
Matt Clark, Director, Boxwood
It’s just one of those things in any type of marketing mix where you want to make sure you get exposure to your brand and your services. But more importantly it’s a great intimate touch point with the types of customers and clients we want to be working with. These types of events give us a two-tier approach to how we’re positioning ourselves and how we’re gaining information around what we can be doing better for them.
Todd Starcevich, CEO, Europe and Middle East, ShopperTrak
Retail is becoming more global. We have a presence in 53 countries worldwide and a lot of our partners and people we work with are here. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with everybody over a couple of days.
Mike Shearwood, CEO, Aurora Fashions Ltd
We find terrific value in attending the World Retail Congress. It brings together a terrific group of leaders and innovators across the retail community in a way that no other conference does in a very short amount of time to share ideas, information, in a very, very valuable way for MasterCard and for the retail community.
Andrew D. Mantis, Group Head Merchant Information, MasterCard Advisors
The World Retail Congress, for us, represents an opportunity to really present our findings and our research to a very powerful group of retailers and that is significant for us. We get positive feedback from the retailers that we speak to that they value that research that we bring and that they value that insight.
Peter Gold, Head of Cross-Border Retail EMEA, CBRE
The real school on retail. If you wish to stay in tune on trends and best practices, you must come.
Juliana Antonini Cozar, CEO, ABIT Brazilian Textile & Apparel Industry Association
The World Retail Congress is unique. It’s the one where a global retail audience can gather as oppose to a series of national conventions and in a world were retailers are truly global now they actually need to have that opportunity to gather, exchange best practices, hear what is going on in the markets. It is the single most useful opportunity to really learn and meet up with your colleagues from around the world in one place.
Ian Cheshire, CEO, Kingfisher
In just a few years the World Retail Congress has become a date in every retailer's calendar, it's a place where we can share thoughts and insights and talk about the challenges we all face.
Philip Clarke, CEO, Tesco
It was brilliant. It exceeded our expectations. We met people from all over the world and the attendance level was very high and the level inside the companies who we spoke to was really sophisticated. 100% pleased.
Johannes Koppensteiner, CEO, Wrightside Software
I think the break and the lunch periods have been really busy which has been great. We have been really impressed with the level of audience here compared with some of the other main stream conferences that we have done. You have really c-level, president level executives that we really want to speak to.
