Sri Lanka Retailers’ Association (SLRA) aims to be the apex body of the retail industry in Sri Lanka with an ambitious vision of ‘Achieving Retail Excellence’ by being the ‘Voice of the Retail industry in Sri Lanka’.

As a means of achieving SLRA’s vision and mission, SLRA will be organizing the Sri Lanka Retailers’ Forum which will be the first and foremost retail forum organized in Sri Lanka and also is one of the flagship events SLRA has lined up for year 2017. The Retailers’ Forum will take place on the 12th and 13th of September 2017 at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, and is focussed to address areas that will take the retail industry forward in Sri Lanka.

The Retail Forum will focus mainly on the emerging trends of retail both locally and globally, find answers to current burning issues in the industry and share innovative best practises of retail. This forum will be graced by top local and international retail expert speakers and invitees from across the globe who will share their industry knowledge with the local veterans.

SLRA representing all leading retailers, is convinced that the Forum will be an event of immense benefit to the entire retail industry in Sri Lanka.
