INDIA: Summit To Fashion The Future Of Retail
Billed as Asia's largest fashion and retail event, the Images Fashion Forum (IFF) and KSA Retail Summit is taking place in New Delhi, India next month to address the needs of existing and emerging retailers, brands, and service providers.
Forecasts suggest India will be one of the largest consumer markets in the world by the end of this decade. And over the next 3 years alone around 25 hypermarkets, 275 large department stores, 1500 supermarkets and over 5,000 retail showrooms are set to open across the country.
The event, which takes place from 11-13 February 2004, is due to address these expanding needs.
"It will bring together some of the best fashion and retail brands, companies and minds from across the globe from the fields of fashion, design and architecture, visual merchandising, retail support systems and promotion," says IFF organiser Amitabh Taneja.
These include the Lycra Rendez-Vous trends presentation; Trend View, a showcase of national and international fashion directions; and the new collection Fashion Showcase.
Other highlights are L³, a dedicated platform providing access to the retail real estate opportunities available across India; Retail Access, which will house the offices of all leading department chains; and Franchising Expo, a forum of franchise concepts in fashion and lifestyle retailing.
'Springboard' is a launchpad for fashion and lifestyle brands hoping to enter the Indian market; and on the retail front Asia Shop expected to be the largest store design and retail support systems exposition of the region.
The KSA Retail Summit, on 12-13 February, will feature speakers from leading retail organisations from the US, Europe and South East Asia.
