The continuing boom of online shopping in Asia Pacific will see the World Retail Congress Asia Pacific deliver global intelligence on digital retail matters when it takes place from 19 to 21 March 2013 in Singapore.

Over 600 of the most senior retail executives from across Asia Pacific as well as leading international brands and multinational retailers will consider the question of their online and offline presence in the Asia Pacific retail market and aim to discover what the right balance is between online ‘clicks’ and physical ‘bricks’.

A variety of informative and innovative learning opportunities will be centred on four core themes – Digital, Consumer, Market and Retail.

"While developed markets may see a plateau of consumer demand, many areas in Asia are still in the development stage and consumers are being offered opportunities that they have never had before,” Jannie Chan, Singapore Retailers Association chairman, said.

“As the world gets smaller, global brands are making their presence felt in more markets, consumers are travelling to more countries more easily and more affordably, and the internet has literally brought the world's retail stores to everyone's home. Consumers' appetites in Asia are whetted and far from saturated, ensuring further growth potential for Asian retail."

The World Retail Congress Asia Pacific 2013 will be the meeting place for this important group where retail leaders will share global market intelligence and insights into growth opportunities and trends in the Asia Pacific market.
