TMF Group’s Annual Retail Summit 2018, November 29th 2018, Shanghai

23 November 2018

Dear CICC Members and Friends,

The China-Italy Chamber of Commerce presents the TMF Group’s Annual Retail Summit 2018 organized by CICC Member TMF Group.

In this fast-changing consumer market, competitiveness is the key.  E-commerce has disrupted retail habits and digitalization penetrated all aspects of retail.  From sourcing and production to the supply chain and omnichannel strategies, more investment is needed for companies to be able to eliminate redundancies and to evolve at the pace of the market. Be that treasury and tax reporting, payment platforms, channel consolidation or reconciliation, a more efficient supply chain is needed.  An omnichannel approach that speaks the same language across online and offline marketplaces, in tune with a real estate presence, is essential to create and sustain a unified brand positioning.

The future of global retail is happening here and now.

Throughout the annual retail session, you will hear insights from professionals in the consulting and legal industries, as well as from established brand and compliance experts as they evaluate best practises, ongoing trends and explore growth opportunities for 2019 and beyond.


The event will be held on Thursday November 29th 2018, at 03.00 PM at Jing An Shangri-La in Shanghai.
