Retail Excellence has today (6 February) confirmed that it has won the bid to host delegates from thirty countries across six continents at the mid-year meeting of the Global Retail Council.
The Global Retail Council meeting will be hosted at Retail Excellence Annual Conference at the Retail Retreat at Citywest Hotel on 15 and 16 May.
A reported 2000 retailers will congregate to learn from and be inspired by world class speakers and suppliers in the industry.
“To host so many influential retail executives from around the world and profile some of the best retailing standards we deliver in Ireland is a significant opportunity and achievement. It is uplifting that Ireland has been selected to host the mid-year meeting,” said David Fitzsimons of Retail Excellence.
According to a statement the retail body competed against Canada and Australia and were successful in their endeavours to host this 'prestigious meeting' of international executives.
Matthew Shay, National Retail Federation President and CEO said: “After attending the annual Retail Excellence conference last year, I am deeply aware of Ireland’s thriving retail environment and I look forward to returning with colleagues from around the globe.”
