By Retail4Growth Team | October 03, 2019

The 13th edition of In-Store Asia, scheduled to be held during 23 -25, April, 2020, in Mumbai is all set to bring back the focus on brick and mortar retail while highlighting in-store experience, shopper data and innovative new technology solutions in the retail space.

With the overall retail market in the country projected to be worth $770 billion and with brick-and-mortar retail comprising nearly 98% of the total retail space, India is undoubtedly among the most promising markets with huge potential for richer retail experiences and efficient in-store solutions.

In-Store Asia (ISA), Indian subcontinent’s largest event for the retail community and now part of the Euroshop family, will roll out endless possibilities in store fit-out and design solutions. ISA 2020, scheduled to be held during 23 -25, April, 2020, will focus on retail experience, design, shopper marketing and in-store solution providers. Fixture manufacturing leader Renam is the principal sponsor of the event, while retail lighting major Argo Lighting will sponsor the VM&RD Awards, 2020.

VM Challenge 2019 had 6 teams and 42 participants from 15+ companies with the theme being ‘Saree in Workforce’ and the sponsors for the same were Taneira (Tata’s saree retailing venture) and HP.
