TRLC 2018 – Why You Should Attend

The Retail Leaders Conference is an annual colloquium of Nigerian retail thought and practice leaders. They brainstorm, discuss and align on the key issues, challenges and opportunities of the Nigerian Retail Industry and importantly how to drive the sustainable growth of the Industry. TRLC 2018 is the 5th edition of the Conference.

The theme “The Future of Retail in Nigeria 2.0 – Innovate or Perish” was chosen primarily to draw retailers’ attention to the key issues of future survival, sustainable growth and profitability. We expect participants to leave the Conference with clear actionable insights and responsibilities.

TRLC 2018 (5th Edition) is structured into 5 parts:


At Plenaries, keynote speakers will address key areas of innovation opportunities and how through innovation retailers can drive sustainable business success and prosperity well into the future.

The Platform

TRLC 2018 Platform shall be slightly different in terms of format and execution. Instead of the usual presentation style adopted by previous TRLCs’ Platforms, a Panel discussion style with greater involvement and participation of our respected participants and leaders present have been favoured.

There are 7 key areas that we have identified where retailers must innovate to be guaranteed a prosperous and successful future. These areas we have coined into the acronym “L.E.A.D.E.R.S.”- The New Pillars of Retail Success.

We have therefore put together a panel of seasoned professionals and leaders who together with our respected participants and leaders present will discuss these 7 New Pillars, share thoughts and insights on how retailers and other industry stakeholders should relate, play and innovatively engage them to be guaranteed a prosperous and successful future.

Retail Awards & Recognition (New)

As part of our commitment to promoting the growth and development of the retail industry in Nigeria, we are introducing the Retail Awards & Recognition platform into The Retail Leaders Conference. Retail Recognitions & Awards platform is dedicated to recognizing, celebrating and rewarding retail individuals and businesses that have made invaluable contributions to the growth and development of the Nigerian retail industry.

We invite you to join us to celebrate our retail generals, heroes and heroines of the Nigerian retail industry.

B2B Meetings

The Business to Business (B2B) Meetings with local and international businesses seeking opportunities, partnership and collaborations; – mall developers and operators, architects and store designers, franchisors, investors, financiers, ancillary service providers etc.
