Reset and grow your business successfully by bringing out the TRUE LEADER in you at the 28TH NRCE.


Are leaders born or made? This question has been a debate for so long that some say it cannot be taught, others affirm that it is an inborn quality. Another thing comes to mind also are the traits and abilities one must possess to become a good leader. Although there are a lot of articles and studies explaining the basics of being a good leader making it seem like a superpower, we think the REAL question that should be answered is “how leaders can effectively use their position or superpower to inspire, motivate and influence people?” Well, good thing we have invited thought leaders who will just do that.

The 28th National Retail Conference and Stores Asia Expo (NRCE) will feature industry captains whose aim is to promulgate the true essence of being a great leader and simultaneously, support and redirect you to the light at the end of the tunnel especially now that we are transitioning to the recovery period.

On August 11, the consultant to top fortune 500 CEOs, Mr. Tom Oliver will provide a stimulating keynote session on “Inspire, Innovate and Transform to a fearless future and retail with purpose”, while on August 12, Central Marketing Group – the international brand distributorship arm of Central Group (the leading retail conglomerate in Thailand), Mr. Edwin Hawson will deliver an extraordinary keynote presentation on “Thriving beyond borders”, which will definitely encourage the audience to thrive and expand beyond pre-conceived “borders” in life.

Joining the roster of game-changing leaders is Gary De Ocampo, President and Managing Director of Kantar Philippines who will deliver a data-backed session on the “Filipino consumer trends in Retail” for NRCE Day 1 while Jos Ortega, Chairman and CEO of Havas Ortega will walk us through on “The Covid Generation: A Prosumer Report on the New Breed of Filipino Consumers” for Day 2.

This is your chance to help your business reach greater heights by attending 28th NRCE’s transformative sessions and at the same time network and collaborate with local and international luminaries in the retail industry face-to-face on August 11-12, 2022 at the SMX Convention Center Manila.
