Milagrow World Small Retail Conference

India is as much a nation of retailers as it is of small businesses and farmers. Traditional retailers are the 3rd largest providers of employment in the country. They need to grow to survive and to survive, they need to adopt world-class, lowest-cost best practices.

Milagrow has a dedicated retail practice, through which it provides 360 degree venture catalyst solutions to the growing retailers. The consulting solutions, however, can only reach a limited number of retailers. Therefore, Milagrow is building a global platform, which can help the smaller and independent retailers to enhance their skills and capabilities and grow their businesses to national and global scales.



Introduction

Milagrow World Small Retail Conference 2010, will be held on 22 -23 July at Le Meridien, New Delhi, will take up the cause of growth for small retailers in India, with the theme "Small is Tall, Will face All!” This conference will serve as a platform to bring together the global ecosystem of retailers. It would over the next few years, become the richest platform for smaller and independent retailers to learn & gain the latest knowledge & skills from the best in the business.

The conference would include policy advocacy, release of path-breaking studies, inspiring success stories, mentoring workshops, retail skills and science sessions, etc. with an objective of offering every stakeholder in the retail ecosystem an excellent opportunity to learn, interact and network.
