The Congress was founded in 2007 in response to retailers seeking a platform for senior leaders to gather together and discuss major issues and trends affecting the industry.
In delivering this agenda, the Congress has welcomed thousands of senior retail speakers, from some of the world’s biggest, to the newest businesses, apart from leading industry stakeholders from global economics, politics, finance and NGOs.
Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, one of the highlights of World Retail Congress is the World Retail Awards, which will be given away on the eve of the Congress.
Madinat Jumeirah, the five-star venue will host more than 400 Awards guests, with finalists for 2016 awards to be showcased before the esteemed audience. Winners would be chosen only days earlier, and the matter would be kept secretive until the night. The winners are chosen much earlier, and are announced only on the stage.
The Congress Closing ceremony would be the ultimate networking event. Starting with drinks on the Madinat Arena Water Terrace, the evening will move on to a relaxed dinner with entertainment. The ceremony will conclude with an after-party which include music and networking reception on the Madinat Arena Water Terrace.
