Retail Asia Expo (RAE) 2015 is once again gearing up to provide a retailing experience with more solutions to the retailing community. As the digital and physical shopping worlds move ever closer to one another, Retail Asia Expo with its 10,000 retailing professionals will examine the changes affecting this community.

With over 200 exhibitors, and 50 countries represented, this year’s event will offer many solutions and new ideas on how to move forward in this extremely fast moving industry. The combination of awards, seminars, exhibitions and networking opportunities make this an unmissable event.

Stuart Bailey, General Manager of Diversified Communications HK LLC., the organiser  of Retail Asia Expo, said: “Today’s retail environment is more complex and competitive than ever, as digital technologies, rising cost and changing customer expectations all make an impact. Retail Asia Expo 2015 is bringing all the latest and most exciting idea, tools and technologies together in one place to help Asia’s retailers overcome their most pressing challenges and prepare for the future.”

Retail Asia Expo 2015 has been carefully curated to present insights, products and equipment that will help retailers take advantage of new retail technology and e-commerce solutions and benefit from the latest retail design and in-store marketing trends. The Expo runs concurrently with the Omni-Channel Retailing Conference, where decision-makers will reveal how leading brands manage their day-to-day business for success.
