We are delighted to be sponsoring this year’s World Retail Congress taking place on 8 – 10 September in Rome.
The theme to this year’s Congress is ‘Transformation today, tomorrow and beyond’, key to which for many retailers is international expansion.
We’re sponsoring what promises to be an insightful panel debate with leading figures in the retail sector.
Susan Samuel, Retail Partner at Eversheds, will be joined on the panel by Tobias Wasmuht, MD for SPAR China, and International Retail Director for SPAR International, Franco Manna, President at Group Sebeto – Rossopomodoro and Brendan Dorrian, Personal Envoy to the Chairman & Head of Business Development at Fawaz A. Alhokair & Co., and the panel will be moderatored by Alex Cara, SVP - Group Retail at Pandora.
The panel will debate and discuss how to achieve sustainable international growth by considering the range of challenges including developing strategic plans, choosing the right business model, how to incorporate an omnichannel approach and offering insights from expansion plans.
The international expansion panel will be taking place on Wednesday 9th September at 2pm (CET). Follow us on twitter @Consumeversheds for tweets throughout the panel and other interesting insights discussed during the three day congress.
We’ve also recently launched our interactive international expansion guide for retailers. The retail industry is becoming increasingly competitive with more businesses looking to diversify and expand their business. Our interactive guide outlines practical steps and issues to consider when expanding, from identifying the expansion opportunity through to market launch.
