Join us at the 6th edition of The Retail Leaders Conference – TRLC 2019, holding on June 20, 2019 by 9:00 am at Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island Lagos with the theme: “Nigeria Retail 2025 – The Catalyst & The Game-Changers”



The 6th edition of The Retail Leaders Conference, TRLC 2019 seeks to explore the transformation in the Nigeria retail industry and the implications for retail leaders of the shifts in social structures, consumer behaviour and preferences – fast-changing and demanding consumers, the aggressively growing competition from nimble new market entrants, rising ecommerce trends, and more appreciation and use of technology that are revolutionizing the way people shop, what they buy and how they live.

Since 2015 when we started “The Future of Retail in Nigeria” series, one of the key lessons we’ve learnt is that nobody can drive to the future on cruise control. This is because the future involves a series of shifts, and only by accepting these shifts and doing something about them will we stand any chance of success and survival into the future. At this conference, we urged retail leader to take a 10-year view of the Nigeria retail industry, and in particular their retail enterprise, with a view futureproofing it while maximizing emerging growth opportunities.

The Nigeria retail industry has undergone a significant transformation over the past decade, and it continues to evolve quickly. For instance, a look at major street in urban centers paints the picture better as almost every building hitherto residential have been transformed into retail business premises. In addition, traditional retailers (brick and mortar retailers) are being confronted by a growing competition from ecommerce retailers who are already taking a growing share of retail sales with the leading e-businesses fast becoming dominant retail players in the country. Most of all, whether offline or online, both are daily confronted by a dynamic ecosystem, and consumers that are more dynamic, demanding and less forgiving. With these changes taking place, discerning and forward-thinking retail leaders must embrace the hard truth of building businesses that are successful not only today, but that are sustainable, and can be passed on to successors that are passionate about the business they so much love and care about.

In today’s world where business strategies change daily, retail leaders must be concerned about the top global and domestic trends that will guarantee continuous growth, profitability and sustainability and be prepared to provide answers to key questions such as: what the Nigeria retail environment will look like few or many years from now? What will competition look like? What will the customer look like? What will their preferences be? What policies are likely to shape the Nigeria retail of the future? What are the possible tailwinds and headwinds? These and many other such questions implies that every well-meaning retail leader must be gearing up for an uncertain and coming onslaught in the Nigeria retail business environment. The above notwithstanding, it is clear that the Nigeria retail landscape in 2025 will not be the same as it is today.

Retail leaders must also rethink how and where to serve the smart consumer and provide them with the right experiences they seek. They must to build capabilities to put data at the heart of their organizations and create the agility to respond to market change. Their supply chain must evolve into an agile, transparent, and demand-response network. They must understand where value will be created; constantly stress-test every assumption; challenge complacency; embrace challenges and most of all, cast their net wider for opportunities. Retail leaders must begin to explore, identify and implement the right balance of bold strategic choices that will sustain their business today and transform it for guaranteed relevance in the future.

This conference therefore in continuation of “The Future of Retail in Nigeria series is about helping retail leaders to rethink the future, and by implication the actions they need to take now in other to secure a firm place of respectable growth, relevance and leadership in the future. It will equip participants with unique insights to create the right balance between success today and sustainable growth for the future, confront the dynamic realities in the retail ecosystem, shift their focus from only protecting what they have today, to creating what they want/need to become and adopt solutions to set retail on the journey to a prosperous and fun-filled future year 2025 and beyond.

The future of the Nigeria retail industry is constantly evolving and may seem uncertain, but it is exciting and profitable for those who start to adapt now, and very exciting for those who will embrace the catalyst and the game-changers!
