“Following 2021, which was a phenomenal year, the 2022 figures also reflect a continuation of the industry’s growth trends, while making adjustments to the global economic situation as well as to the reality of digital retailing and its integration into traditional physical retailing,” said Dedi Rizal, founder and chairman of the conference.

“Also at this year’s conference, we will discuss the variety of innovations, technologies and trends that are at the center of the local and international retail scene,” he said in a press release. “In addition to the fascinating content, special emphasis is given to the business/social meeting between the mall executives on the one hand and the retail-chain executives on the other, all with the aim of maximizing, strengthening and deepening the personal, business and social connections between them.

“Over the years, the conference has also become an excellent platform for creating business connections. The unique and informal atmosphere creates fertile ground for collaborations, and many agreements are made and closed during the conference.”
