Early bird rates are available until 30 September 2017
Retailers & Government, Startups & SMEs Rates AVAILABLE – SEE PRICING BELOW


In recent years, Australian retail has proved remarkably resilient in the face of a turbulent global economic backdrop and increased competition from overseas players. But our retailers can only stare down global challenges so long, and it seems clear that they will soon have to fight harder – and smarter – than ever before if they are to maintain current rates of sales growth. But what is the role of government, regulators and the sector as a whole in removing barriers to competition and encouraging retailers to pursue world-class productivity and innovation?

The Australian Financial Review is proud to announce the return of its annual Retail Summit, a high-profile, independent and outwardly-focussed platform for retail leaders to discuss the future of retail in Australia and lay out the case for reform. We expect 200+ high-level attendees from retail and government, with extensive coverage in the AFR.
