Dear Esteemed Participants!
I am honored to extend a warm welcome to you at The Retail Show – #TRS23, a significant event that embodies progress in the retail industry. This marks our third edition of this remarkable conference, made possible through our valued partnership with the Chainstore Association of Pakistan (CAP). Thanks to CAP's steadfast support, we proudly declare The Retail Show as an event crafted by the retail community, for the retail community.
The retail sector is a cornerstone of Pakistan's economy, contributing over 18% to the GDP and employing nearly 16% of the total labor force. It plays a vital role in driving economic growth and providing employment opportunities for a significant portion of our population.
A special welcome goes out to Mr. Loek Berendsen, the distinguished Founder of Bold Rethink and Former Global Head of IKEA Customer Experience, who will be sharing his invaluable insights through a keynote and masterclass. Our mission has always been to bring together a diverse array of international and Pakistani speakers, all with the aim of empowering our local retail and e-commerce sectors. In our previous two editions, TerraBiz & CAP collaborated to host over 70 speakers, partner with 64 organizations, feature 30 exhibitors, and welcome 1400 delegates from over 370 companies across two cities.
As our theme and agenda suggest, meticulous research has been put into crafting an agenda that caters to both local and global interests. This summit is poised to unite around 500 leaders from various retail sectors, ranging from e-commerce and malls to banks, payment companies, regulators, FMCG giants, supermarkets, fintech innovators, logistics experts, and technology pioneers.
I urge you to register early, as our past events have been completely sold out. The invaluable knowledge and networking opportunities that await you at The Retail Show are not to be missed.
After the main event, we offer a full-day masterclass with Loek Berendsen, providing a unique opportunity to elevate your brand for profitable growth.
I eagerly anticipate welcoming you to this transformative event. Together, let's shape the future of digital commerce.
Hamza W. Hashmi
