Convenience retailing is growing rapidly as consumers in an ever-evolving world want products faster than ever.

An upcoming conference is set to explore the new world of convenience retailing and how Australian businesses can leverage time-pressed consumers’ desire for convenient purchasing experiences to improve their bottom line.

The event, which is open to retailers and suppliers from all banners and brands, will explore how retailers can thrive in the current impulse and convenient retailing environment.

The conference will include two days of exclusive industry insights, including advice from experts with years of experience growing their businesses and meeting directly with suppliers.

The symposium, which will launch on August 14th, will see leading retailers and experts present on the topic “Doing your own thing”, why it’s so beneficial to be clear about your brand and develop your own product offering.
