Retail Asia is proud to launch the 17th Retail Asia Awards, a prestigious and exciting event that gathers the region's best retailers and recognises the most outstanding retail initiatives.
Opportunities for growth in this region remain extensive and I will be expecting innovations and projects that encompasses new and better store formats and concepts that blend online and in-store shopping, initiatives and solutions that seamlessly address health and safety while still able to provide an immersive in-store customer experience, responding and supporting a renewed focus on tackling climate change or integrating mechanisms and partnerships to better improve customer loyalty.
Some of the criteria for these projects or innovations I’m looking for includes:
o How seamless and impactful it is
o Does it cater to a wide range of consumer groups
o If there is potential for longevity
o And sometimes the simplest ideas are the best and it does not always require a high capital investment.
