IRF 2012 conference will cover topics such as retail brand building, retail real-estate, reinventing the physical store experience, e-commerce, social media marketing, FDI in retail, the changing decision-making roles of the modern consumer, the next-gen of leaders in family-managed business, and so on. A few interesting sessions to look forward to are “Retail Businesses as Agents of Social Change” stressing on responsible retailing, and “Customer Centric Retailing – A Strategic Choice for Long-Term Growth” highlighting the importance of customer loyalty for retail businesses. The event will kick-start with a power-packed debate on FDI in retail and role of modern retail in driving India’s overall growth.

As per Kishore Biyani, Founder and Group CEO, Future Group: “Modern retail has a huge potential to not only benefit from India’s increasing consumption demand but also create demand for value-added products, boost local entrepreneurship, create jobs and raise income levels. At IRF, let us explore how we can collaborate to create consumption demand and offer Indian consumers a better standard of living by providing better products at best prices.”
