Retail’s Big Show by NRF and Comexposium is all set to reach the shores of Asia Pacific


January 18, 2023 | By Anurima Das

The National Retail Federation and Comexposium Group, one of the leading event organisers in the world has announced that Retail’s Big Show will expand to Asia Pacific beginning in 2024 with a new annual conference and exhibition. The inaugural NRF 2024: Retail’s Big Show Asia Pacific will be held June 11 – 13, 2024, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore, six months after NRF 2024: Retail’s Big Show in New York City.

This Asia Pacific version of Retail’s Big Show aims to integrate regional leaders across the retail industry to collaborate at a Pan Asia Pacific level. The mega event unites Asia Pacific’s retail ecosystem under one roof, providing industry-leading content and a platform to attract quality audiences from across the region.

NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay when commenting on this big move explained that NRF along with Comexposium, which has global offices in almost all prominent retail hotspots will want to expand the power of Retail’s Big Show to other parts of the world. He said this is a golden chance to steady their footprints in the world’s fastest growing markets that offer limitless opportunities in retail.

Southeast Asia is home to more than 655 million people with a consumer market of US$3 trillion and average gross domestic product growth of around 5% among Association of Southeast Asian Nations member countries. By 2050, the region is expected to be the fourth-largest market in the world, with rapidly growing disposable income and high digital adoption. Retail sales across Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand are projected at $1.54 trillion in 2022 and expected to reach $1.77 trillion by 2025.

Singapore’s central location and its long-established status as a business center for the region provides an optimal stage for NRF to launch its inaugural Asia Pacific edition of Retail’s Big Show.
