World Retail Congress brings together the best business leaders and industry innovators to address challenges, opportunities, and the future of global retail. The conference facilitates the most meaningful discussions for our industry and it was truly an honor to receive the WRC Woman of the Year Award.

I made some great connections at the World Retail Congress this year, not to mention, got to speak on a panel with people I truly respect and admire in the industry. The Congress team was incredibly hospitable and the entire experience was extremely beneficial.

Inspiring sessions with open sharing and conversations on how we all can continue to deliver great experiences in retail; it is also a great forum to meet retail thought leaders.

World Retail Congress in Madrid was the best in many years: the quality of speakers and the relevance of topics— combined with A-list attendees—ensured the insights discussed and issues raised were more thought-provoking than ever.

Overall a great and motivating experience; you get to hear some of the most influential industry leaders, there is nowhere else this can happen.

The Congress impressed me with the line-up of both speaker quality as well as content relevancy. It allowed a look into the crystal ball and left me pumped up to tackle the future ever dynamic face of retail.

I’m left quite inspired. I think what I’ve always felt with World Retail Congress – the quality of attendance and the substance of the event is very high. It’s a very executive level attendance and really good content but at a somewhat human scale in the sense that you can network, bump into people, everyone is quite approachable and I think to me that is the perfect mix.

Guillaume Bacuvier |
CEO | dunnhumby

I come to the World Retail Congress for two main reasons: first, it reflects on some of the current themes in retail and the speakers here are the most evocative you can find on these themes. Secondly, it’s also a great meeting of minds from across the world and has lovely networking opportunities.
