Newest retail event breaks the mould for largest gathering in Australia

The retail industry is no stranger to change and there is no shortage of events about the latest trends and developments impacting the sector.

New Retail ’19, organised by The Retail Learning Channel — the new learning platform by Akolade, is the newest event to hit the industry, bringing together the entire sector for three full-on days at the MCEC in Melbourne this February for an event not quite like anything before.

The event itself is no mean feat to put together — three days with three streams a day of content, with over 70 speakers and an expected 2000+ attendees over the course of the event.

What makes the gathering different is the understanding of the importance of the entire retail value chain.

In a consumer-driven world, the retail journey must be considered as one continuous experience and New Retail ’19 is an event to bring the entire retail sector together.

The first day of the event delves into ‘new retail’ — omnichannel customer experience then follows through with logistics on the second day, finally focusing on the consolidation of strategy to ‘China and Beyond’.

The impact of international trends cannot be understated in the Australian retail market and New Retail ’19 is the first event to fully explore the impact of daigous, Hema Stores and magic mirrors will have to the market back home.

Delivering on global trends, the event features speakers from around the world, weighing in on global trends.

Simon Torring from Sephora in Singapore, Jody Marshall from Walmart Canada, Suzan Kereere from Visa US and Dustin Jones, former MD Macy’s in Hong Kong are just some of speakers bringing strong international flavour to the event.

The Retail Learning Channel brings the event to the retail sector with tickets starting at just AUD$200, showing its commitment to educating and upskilling the industry.
