World Retail Congress 2014: Highlights
In September/ October 2014, more than 1,500 global retail leaders from over 60 countries will gather in Paris for the annual World Retail Congress (WRC). WRC will address critical issues occupying retail boardroom agendas, including the next wave of technology, the role of the store, environmentally responsible retailing, and the ever-important engagement and understanding of the global consumer. Also in 2014, WRC will host its first World Retail Expo, whereby the most pioneering technology solutions and products will be showcased. The world's best retailers from around the globe will also be recognised at the World Retail Awards, to celebrate retail innovation and success. A Retail Study Tour will further highlight some of Paris' newest and most innovative retail stores and concepts, including Le Grande Epicerie - Le Bon Marche, which has revolutionised the in-store environment and Guerlian, which successfully blends physical and virtual retailing.
