The FUTURE RETAIL Summit 2014 celebrates Middle East's retail success and global attractiveness. The two day summit will keep you updated and connected with key retail stakeholders and feature new streams, high calibre speakers and activities.

OVERVIEW

The Middle East retail landscape has grown massively over the last 10 years and has become a powerful drive for the region’s economy. In fact, retail is reported to contribute 28 % to Dubai's growth, proving that the industry will continue to be one of Dubai's main sources of economic growth.

The Business Monitor International (BMI) estimates that the UAE retail sales of Dh114bn in 2011, will grow 32.9 % to Dh151bn by 2015. It takes more than advanced technology and capital to increase footfall and sales. Successful retailing also requires a great concept, a strategic location, and the right talent.

The Future Retail Summit brings together the region’s industry leaders to discuss best practices, gains, losses and future opportunities.

With the support of our advisory members, speakers and partners, the Future Retail Summit features the best of panels and networking this year.
