International retail is changing rapidly as global retailers invest in emerging markets and strengthen domestic operations. FMCG manufacturers face the challenges of private label growth, low cost global sourcing and supply chain initiatives such as retail ready packaging.
The AIP has secured speakers from the UK based international research organisation, IGD. AIP invites you to attend this special event to hear guests deliver expert commentary on the global retail landscape, the future of FMCG manufacturing, and the trends and strategies being employed by large retailers in the world. The speakers will draw from international experience to highlight what it means, your brand, your company, your job...How are you going to respond?
