This year's event - which will take place over 2.5 days - is well positioned to set the standard for future events in the region through its expert employment of roundtable discussions, lively working lunches, one-on-one meetings and cutting edge program. Some of the hot topics scheduled for discussion at the summit this year include: Big Data, Predictive Analytics, Mobile Payments & POS, Omni-Channel Strategy, E-Commerce and Marketing Services.

Steven Kramer, President Americas for Hybris, an attendee at last year's event, shared his views: "a tremendous event, it gives us the opportunity to meet with a lot of industry executives. We absolutely would love to come to the next event, we've already signed up and we're looking forward to it".

Attending NG Retail Latin America Summit this year will be; Casas Pernambucanas - Fabio Veras, Gerente de TI; El Palacio de Hierro - Dario Okrent, E-Commerce Director; Grupo Elektra - Silvestre Lemus Rubio, Gerente de Sistemas y Operaciones; Falabella - Santiago de Sousa, Gerente de Marketing; Walmart - Fernando Diniz, Director of Supply Chain, Latin America.

Keith Kaskie, NG Retail LA Summit Director for GDS International - the global events company behind the event - says: "The Latin America retail industry is beginning a new era, after decades of instability driven by hyperinflation and structural imbalances. With the recent strong economic growth, and the emergence of the middle class, retailers are looking to expand their presence while integrating multiple channels to improve the shopping experience and better connect with the consumer. The NG Retail Latin America Summit will bring together senior retail executives from the IT, Marketing, and E-Commerce fields to discuss and overcome the challenges they are currently facing in a relaxed and vibrant environment."
