INDIA RETAIL FORUM 2011 :- INDIA'S BIGGEST EVENT FOR RETAILERS.
OVER 3000 PARTICIPANTS, 100 EXHIBITORS AND
200 SPEAKERS AT INDIA RETAIL FORUM
India Retail Forum (IRF) is a congregation of the most innovative and successful retail brands, companies and minds from across the globe and the entire retail support universe, including retail real estate, design & architecture, merchandise & services, visual merchandising, security and technology.
The 2011 edition of IRF will be modelled on the theme “Shopping for Retail Success” as modern retail in India poises for real, sustainable growth. The retail industry in India has gone through several orientations and readjustments since the advent of modernisation approximately six years ago. After the initial years of reckless expansion and hard lessons, it’s time now to train our sights on building retail businesses that are relevant, successful and enduring.
IRF 2011 will also debate and conclude on key issues and challenges facing the future of Indian retail. What is the role of modern retail in driving consumption? How did some retailers grow at their fastest during the most difficult economic phases? Is the growth sustainable? Who is responsible for developing retail infrastructure? What would be the smartest strategies for global players to effect success in India? How can small retailers be involved and engaged in the overall retail growth story?
The forum will bring to the participants an opportunity to learn, share and evolve with the masters in the business, explore out–of–the–box ideas, witness innovation in merchandise, spaces, IT and support systems, and celebrate outstanding achievements in the business of retail in India.
The ‘Mecca’ for retail captains and policy makers, IRF is a ‘must attend’ for all businesses wanting to connect with the lucrative–but–complex Indian market and her consumers.
