One sesion looks at FDI in Retail: A Key Enabler for Retail to reach its full Potential

Retail is an investment hungry sector where growth will be fuelled by an expansion of footprint and building of a more robust infrastructure to support this footprint. It is also a sector where several innovations from around the world can be adapted and executed to increase productivity. FDI can play a crucial role in providing the Indian retail sector with both the investment and access to know-how.

The regulations restricting FDI in multi-brand retail have been under heavy discussion in the recent past. This panel will discuss different sides of the argument of this very contemporary. 
Another session will look at Driving Traffic, Conversion and Basket through Merchandising and Pricing. A key factor in the success in organised retail is the ability to expand revenues by increasing traffic, conversion and basket-size. Other than location, merchandising and pricing are two fundamental levers available to a retailer to influence each of these factors.

This session will provide the audience an opportunity to hear from the experts on the processes and techniques involved in achieving these goals. The panelists will share best practices on various tools available to retailers as a part of merchandising and pricing, and illustrate it with stories from their experiences.
