2023 is progressing quickly in the retail industry. Supply Chain, Retail Planning, and Merchandising continue to evolve rapidly. Retail owners and senior leaders gather for an exclusive roundtable to look for significant growth opportunities and strategic directions to navigate these disrupting times.

For top retail executives and leaders in the Philippines, the Philippine Retailers Association’s (PRA) Retail Executive Circle is the academy’s exclusive roundtable and premium learning program. This year’s by-invitation-only event is a gathering of C-Level and senior management leaders to discuss the changing retail landscape, future challenges, and opportunities, and improve their business ecosystems.

During the roundtable discussion, global thought leaders from RELEX Solutions and NielsenIQ Singapore come together to address global issues retailers face in the industry. Topics that may be discussed include understanding the disruptive environment of 2023, future pressure points for retailers, building supply chain resilience, and strategies to combat pressure and uncertainty in supply chain and retail planning.

Johann Hall heads the Retailer Account Development team for NielsenIQ Singapore and the Philippines and will deliver the first presentation on “NIQ 2023 Consumer Outlook: Roadmap to Growth in Disruptive Times”. Working closely with online and offline grocery retailers, he is responsible for giving retailers actionable insights and market trends to make strategic business decisions.

David Matern, Solution and Retail Advisor at RELEX will discuss How Retailers Can Work Smarter to Improve their Bottom Line”. For the past decade, he has been working with some of the world’s largest retailers, wholesalers, and FMCG companies across various subject matter areas.

In addition to discussing these new priorities and strategies, a panel discussion will be moderated by Raphael Layosa, Founder and CEO of Retailgate Technologies. The roundtable also allows executives to network and build relationships with other retail leaders, share best practices, and explore potential partnerships.

Overall, the Consumer Outlook 2023 and Supply Chain Trends offers a unique opportunity for top retail leaders to come together, discuss important issues facing the supply chain and consumer landscape, and collaborate on strategies to drive growth and innovation.
