Sinaia, Romania – International Hotel
The Progresiv Conference is the only event that challenges the fundamentals of retail and brings together the best minds in the industry since 2000.
The Conference position is cemented by the ability to attract well renowned speakers and delegates including CEOs and Directors from leading retail companies like Auchan, Carrefour, Mega Image, Metro, Cora, Profi, Selgros.
Recognized as the essential meeting place in the retail calendar, the Progresiv Conference gathers annually over 400 delegates from the boardroom level decision makers from distribution and FMCG manufacturers, retail, research and consultancy companies.
The high-level cross industry mix creates dynamic discussions and the only platform to share best practice. 
The 2018 edition agenda is built under the BEYOND BORDERS. Connecting the industry. Sharing visions main theme.
In recent years, the terms that have best defined retail and FMCG industries have been innovation, effervescence, expansion and “out of the box.” We have often been surprised by the strategy of some players to overcome their boundaries and approach completely new business areas. During the 18th edition of the Progresiv Conference, we will find out if these directions have also been a winning card to ensure business growth on medium and long term.
This year’s event comes with a dynamic approach that will give you a broad perspective, from macroeconomic to microbusiness, and the lines to follow in 2018 and far beyond.
Among the 2018 edition topics:
  • The Big Picture
  • The Local Landscape
  • Best Practices
  • Smart Retailing and Smart Shopper Activations parallel sessions, powered by leading manufacturers and retailers, will complement Thursday’s schedule.
  • Retail Talks
The Progresiv Conference will bring the 16th of March an exclusive line-up and two novelty elements: you will first learn what the consumer really understands from the communication efforts of retailers and how they filter the information received, from a study exclusively tailored for our event. In addition, top local retailers are invited to meet the challenges of Progresiv publishers about their business visions, investment plans for 2018 and the results of the latest projects implemented in their business.
