Our world has changed tremendously in the past year. Gone is the time when we as leaders, innovators and industry stakeholders could rely on reactivity and agility alone. Proactive and decisive leadership is the most critical pillar of success going forward.

In a ground-breaking extension of its mandate to create opportunities for deep dialogue and collaboration, the 2021 Retail Leaders Circle MENA Summit will occur in two powerful streams. Stream One will take place Virtually on March 29, 30, & 31 2021.

Being driven by a shared purpose of the power of our industry, we are committed to bring the Stream One of the 2021 program to you virtually, respecting the safety of our engaged community while continuing to drive meaningful change – together.

With regional retail and e-commerce on a roller coaster ride, the virtual conference will be a fully immersive learning and networking experience that will address the ways in which retail will have to adapt to new realities under the theme: “The Global Retail Reset: Disruption, Resilience and the Power of Collaboration”.

Our new virtual format will enable us to address these questions head on, as well as elevate the thinking of an another unrivaled line-up of policy-makers and industry leaders as they shed light on post-Covid growth strategies and disruptive industry forces. Three days for unmissable learning and networking – the most enlightening and exciting yet.
