Retail Leadership Summit (RLS) 2019

India's Retail Champions 2019

About India's Retail Champions

Retail is at an interesting juncture in India with new brands and formats entering the market and the old ones reinventing themselves. Consumption is on the rise, driven by aspirations and increase in per capita income. Technology is adding interesting twists by facilitating innovative business models, aiding efficiency and redefining customer expectations as well as experiences.

This big retail churn is not just revolutionising Indian retail but also separating the winners and the laggards. Brands that have their fundamentals right and are focussed on all the right things are emerging as trendsetters. The India's Retail Champions have been instituted to shine the spotlight on these stars of retail who have shone bright despite all odds. It is a recognition of their efforts, focus and hard work and salute to their indomitable spirit to constantly stay relevant to the times, the customers and the industry.
