PRA brings back biggest retail industry event in the country


By Manila Standard

The National Retail Conference and Stores Asia Expo (NRCE), the biggest and most important retail industry event in the Philippines, is coming back for its 27th edition on August 12 and 13 to help local retailers reboot and emerge stronger from the impact of the pandemic.

The Philippine Retailers Association (PRA) decided to stage the NRCE virtually this year after a year of absence as the group recognizes the importance of giving industry players fresh global insights on how they can adapt to the New Normal.

“The 27th NRCE will be available on your screens on August 12-13, 2021 to provide you actionable strategies, data-backed content and exclusive ideas through immersive, insightful and inspiring learning sessions from trailblazer leaders and experts in the industry from around the globe,” PRA president Rosemarie Bosch Ong, who’s also the senior executive vice president and chief operating officer of Wilcon Depot Inc., emphasized.

Ong said this year’s NRCE will revolve around its overall concept – retail reboot – to reignite the retail industry with its allied industries to uncover new ways and even behaviors as we rewrite the rules to achieve an innovative retail transformation.

The NRCE is the only industry event by retailers, of retailers and for retailers, boasting of a well-curated program featuring top brands and world class speakers, including world renowned retail futurist, best-selling author and founder of The Retail Prophet Doug Stephens and World Retail Congress founder and chairman Ian McGarrigle who will keynote the two-day conference.
