The Power of Women in Retail – 29th NRCE


The Philippine Retailers Association (PRA) is proud to present the 29th National Retail Conference and Expo (NRCE) 2023 – the biggest and most significant event in the country that will bring the retail sector into a new era. And as we gear up for this groundbreaking event, we are excited to announce that the headliner of NRCE is none other than Ayala Land’s Director, Mariana Zobel de Ayala.

With her impressive business acumen and leadership skills, Mariana will share insights on how women’s representation and voices can bring innovation to the table, enrich the decision-making process, and achieve more inclusive and equitable outcomes in retail. She will also discuss the pleasures and pressures of being in the fourth generation of a Philippine business family and the importance of staying relevant.

PRA President, Ms. Rosemarie Ong, believes that Mariana is the perfect fit for this year’s NRCE theme “Retail Breakthrough,” as she is a true trailblazer in her own right.

“We believe that she’s an embodiment of a retail breakthrough as she’s an example of a strong women leader who is not afraid to make a giant leap, embracing new advancements and discoveries to use it and make the necessary steps to achieve success.”

Meanwhile, NRCE 2023 Overall Chairman and Rustan Commercial Corporation President, Mr. Donnie Tantoco, hopes to inspire and motivate attendees through Mariana’s keynote session on “The Power of Women at the Forefront of Progress” to break down barriers and shatter stereotypes, paving the way for future generations.
