AVANI Riverside, Bangkok | January 28-29, 2019

Asia is the largest grocery market in the world and with 6.3% CAGR in just 3 years, its size will be equivalent to Europe and North America combined.

Convenience is showing strongest channel growth, thanks to the region’s rapid urbanisation, growing young population and increasing disposable income. Improved regulatory environments for foreign investment, market competition and expanding shopper demands are also creating significant room for the convenience sector to expand further.  Retailers and manufacturers are looking to capitalise on this trend by expanding their operations and investing in new markets.

C-Store Forum APAC gives you the tools and know-how to create a more successful business, focusing on streamlining processes and developing strategies for future growth.  Using OpenRoom’s signature format of one-to-one meetings, it enables people and businesses to connect, identify opportunities and explore new solutions. Networking is at the heart of the event with endless opportunities to spend time with peers across the region and meet key international suppliers to partner your company’s growth.
