The Sri Lanka Retailers’ Association (SLRA), recently entered into an MoU with the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce to organise the island’s retail forum for the fifth year. This year’s Sri Lanka Retail Forum, themed “Recharging Retail: Resilience to Results” is scheduled for 13 October 2021.
SLRA is the sole industry body for this sector, representing 47 leading national-level retail firms, with countrywide reach across various product segments.
The forum this year will have industry experts from across the world, along with local pioneers within the sector. The focus will be on four thematic sessions this year; catering to the post-pandemic consumer, driving your talent strategy, winning through your omni-channel presence, and an experience-sharing panel on overcoming the challenges from the pandemic.
Speaking at the signing, Healthguard Pharmacy Ltd. Chief Executive Officer and SLRA Vice President Infiyaz Ali stated: “This year’s Sri Lanka Retail Forum will set the stage to explore the challenges and opportunities for business in the current context, and how they could move ahead by using the right talent and technology to evolve and stay current. I encourage all businesses to take part in these sessions to explore these opportunities and expand their boundaries to stay ahead and win in these unprecedented times.
