Retail Survival
Reliable Tactics for Unreliable Times

The 7th edition of The Retail Leaders Conference - TRLC 2021, will hold on July 22, 2021 by 10:00 am with the theme: “Retail Survival – Reliable Tactics for Unreliable Times”. It will be a virtual conference on Zoom.

COVID-19 has created an unprecedented crisis for the businesses across all industries and retail is at the center of this crisis. While a few have been positively affected, others have been groaning under its negative impacts. Beyond today’s immediate challenges faced by businesses, the longer this crisis persists, the more likely we are to see transformative and lasting changes in customer behavior and consequent impact on businesses.
Retailers need to stop expecting business to return to “normal.”. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic and economic crisis, brick-and-mortar retailers had been fighting a fierce battle against e-commerce players. Those challenges have now accelerated at staggering speed.

SINCE 2014

TRLC 2014 (1st Edition)

In 2014, in alignment with key Retail Thought and Practice leaders, Bervidson Group convoked The Retail Leaders Conference (TRLC) as an annual congregation of Retail Thought and Practice leaders to discuss issues affecting retail and chart the right response to the challenges and opportunities of the transforming Nigeria Retail Landscape.

The first conference held at the Sheraton Lagos Hotel, Ikeja on May 27, 2014. More than 100 business leaders across Retail, FMCGs and other Manufacturing, Telecommunication, Banking and Financial Services and other Ancillary service providers gathered together to ruminate on the Changes, Challenges and Opportunities of the Transforming Nigerian Landscape...

TRLC 2016 (3rd Edition)

For TRLC 2016, the theme “Unlocking Retail Potential Survival, Growth & Sustainability” was picked because of the dual challenge of survival and growth that is probably what is keeping most retailers awake at night. The country is dealing major economic challenges – from infrastructural to bureaucratic challenges and lately the challenges of foreign exchange and liquidity in the system and more. Faced with the current realities many retail organizations needed to take drastic measures to fight for their sustainable survival, from cutting costs fast by shrinking store footprints, limiting SKUs, tightening up supply chains to cutting store labour etc. Yet, there were others, who largely unsure of how to react were asking questions as to what to do in the face of current realities. The Conference was therefore positioned to support retail organizations with answers, options, strategies and road maps they can adopt and follow to guarantee their survival not only during this uncertain and challenging economic times, but grow their business in a way that is sustainable both now and in the future...Read More

TRLC 2017 (4th Edition)

The Conference was a meeting and melting point for all stakeholders; Government, Manufacturing, Banks and retail to come together and understand the critical role that retail plays in national economic transformation and how to support retail to grow and ultimately become the anchor of our national economic growth...Read More
