ABOUT THE 13TH EDITION OF POLAND & CEE RETAIL SUMMIT




Key facts:

  • The Retail Summit 2023 is already the thirteenth edition of the summit. The event, which takes place every spring, is now scheduled for March 29-30 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Center Warsaw.
  • The main focus of the Retail Summit was, and still is, improving collaboration between retail, consumer goods and the solution providers for these industries.
  • We're more focused on bringing together the most relevant people than bringing together as many people as possible. Despite our focus on quality of attendees, we are proud to say that Retail Summit has also been the largest Retail & CPG event in the region for at least 10 years, attracting more than 1200 attendees each year.
  • The last Retail Summit took place in 2022 under challenging circumstances shortly after the end of the pandemic and at the beginning of the war in Ukraine. The event had to be relocated to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at the last minute as the previous location became a shelter for refugees. Despite the challenging circumstances, or perhaps because of these circumstances, the event was again well attended with over 1,200 participants. The new Retail Summit venue was so well received by attendees that it became the venue of choice for 2023 as well.
  • The Retail Summit 2023 is the annual place for networking. The rich content of the 3 stages (Main Commercial Stage, Digital Innovation Stage and Supply Chain Stage) and the dedicated e-commerce track will greatly contribute to the discussions taking place at the Trade Collaboration Stage.
  • The Trade Collaboration Stage is the spacious meeting place for further talks and networking with a retail village and thematic discussions. What happens on the Trade Collaboration Stage is seen at least as important as what happens in the conference rooms! (See also floor plan at the bottom of this page)
  • The evening gala on March 29th with the Retailer of the Year awards ceremony is a great place for informal networking over dinner and drinks. This is the ideal place to connect hearts and minds.




WE NEED YOU!


What happens in the conference should not stay in the conference!


We know that what is happening after the conference is of even greater importance than what is happening during the conference and at European Conferences United we believe that our work does not end at the conference.


Rather, the conference is the beginning of a journey that creates positive change. Our events are heavily based on action and catalyze the people we bring together for collaboration, innovation and improvement. The implementation of new tools and solutions plays an important role in business development.


That is why we are constantly looking for original and innovative ways to improve the businesses of the people we bring together. If you have great tools and / or solutions available, we definitely need you to make our events meaningful.


Let's work together!



Michael Samuel, Member of the Management Board & Customer Service Director, European Conferences United
