A C-Suite round table where we will address the factors defining the “new normal” of retail industry post-Covid19.


As the virus began to spread out from China, Asian retailers provided the first lessons to their global peers on how to mitigate the impact of both supply and demand side shocks. All eyes are on Asia again as it stands on the forefront of retail sector's next challenge - to accelerate into recovery and rebound stronger, most likely in different ways.

The discussion will expand on:

  • How retail recovery looks like, considering that Asia is under scrutiny by the rest of the world to learn from
  • How the recovery may not be as expected, in face of perturbed demand \
  • How will the retail industry respond, considering how the consumer purchasing power is impacted by economic situation and travel constraints

The transition to recovery will not be smooth sailing. Retailers will have to find innovative methods to engage and retain customers in the new era, where we don’t know yet if the current focus on “essential” products will redefine customers behaviour or if we should expect the opposite.This is in addition to existing pressures of “anytime, anywhere” service demanded by hard-to-please customers.

Join us to find answers, insights and strategies that you can apply for your own organization as we tackle hot topics such as:

  • What the future holds for this sector,
  • How you can tackle and adapt to challenges, and
  • What strategic insights will influence the future of your business, your customers, and the retail industry as a whole to face the new normal.
