Accelerating Retail @Scale
In a dynamic landscape where retail is undergoing a profound transformation, the Phygital Retail Convention (PRC) emerged as a beacon of innovation, insight, and collaboration. Held on 7 – 8 May at Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai, PRC stood as the largest retail business intelligence extravaganza ever witnessed in India. With over 3,000 delegates, 200 partners and exhibitors, and representation from over 1000 organizations, the event served as a nexus for industry leaders, visionaries, and stakeholders to converge, exchange ideas, and chart the course for the future of retail. One of the defining features of this year’s PRC was the stellar lineup of speakers. From international leaders like Paul Warren of Reliance BP Mobility and Indian heavyweights like Venkatesalu P of Trent, Kunal Behl of Snapdeal, Harpreet Singh Tibb, of Tibbs Frankie to new-age entrepreneurs like Aastha Almast of The New Shop, the event brought together luminaries who shared invaluable insights and strategies on growing a retail business.

Moreover, the PRC served as a platform for the unveiling of pivotal reports that offer deep insights into the evolving retail ecosystem. The India Phygital Index by PWC and Fynd and Retail In India by IMAGES Group provide comprehensive analyses, trends, and projections that help navigate the complexities of retail in the digital age. They not only serve as guideposts for retailers but also as catalysts for innovation and strategic decision-making.

Furthermore, the theme ‘Accelerating Retail @Scale’ permeated the convention, emphasising the urgency and importance of swiftly scaling up retail operations to meet the demands of an ever-evolving and dynamic market like India. Discussions, workshops, and showcases at PRC underscored the imperative for retailers to embrace innovative strategies, technologies, and partnerships to accelerate growth, enhance efficiency, and deliver exceptional experiences to consumers at scale.
