The Big Retail (R)evolution

The RetailME Tech and Marcom Summit is a one-of-a-kind forum, that commemorates the brightest, most enterprising and innovative minds that have transformed the industry over the course of the last decade.

A congregation of CIOs, Tech, Digitisation and E-commerce Heads, the summit, titled The Big Retail (R)evolution will feature panel discussions, key notes and knowledge-sharing in the format of a full-day forum. The coveted participants of the forum will share their success mantras, predict trends, exchange thoughts on the winning and losing technologies in retail, and discuss actionable strategies during the event.

The forum will be followed by an awards gala where the RetailME Tech and Marcom ICONS from the region will be felicitated for their achievements and contributions to the industry. The Images RetailME editorial team, along with a jury comprising of the tech giants and solutions game changers, will put together a power list of the top tech and marketing stars that have successfully led the transformation and digitisation journeys within their organisations. The list will be revealed and the ICONS featured will be felicitated with a memento on stage in the presence of their colleagues and peers from the industry during the cocktail dinner.

Scheduled to take place on June 28th, 2022, RetailME Tech and Marcoms Summit and the RetailME Tech and Marcoms ICONS will be a celebration of achievements, thought-provoking exchange of ideas, and a platform that brings together the region’s greatest tech minds in retail under one roof.

Nomination Guidelines

Last Date to Nominate is 1st June 2022

Nominations are only for retail tech and marcom professionals and not for retail tech solution providers.

While all cooperating listees will be asked for specific numbers and figures, readers must keep in mind that because the great majority of retail companies are privately held, they are under no obligation to disclose financial data.

In the case of non-disclosure, we will refer to information publicly available and gather this information from the retailer’s official websites, personal channels, and published articles in the past year.

We will review responses for consistency and use whatever resources we have at our disposal to ensure accuracy.

Listees are given the option of being interviewed personally by our editorial staff.

RetailME Tech & Marcom ICONS is put together by RetailME’s editorial team and a selected board of jury. If our team has reached out to a nominee or their staff regarding the shortlist, the listing will be done under our discretion.
