"Congress of the FMCG Market – Store of the Year and Drugstore of the Year" is a key meeting of the food, drugstore and pharmacy industry, which has been gathering the most important figures of the Polish market and of the leading European markets for years. The Congress is one of the biggest in the CEE region conferences dedicated to the local and global trends, new ideas and the future of retail, e-commerce and FMCG industry as well as service and technological environment.
Congress of the FMCG Market 2019 is a platform for exchange of thoughts, knowledge and communication between the partners, but also provides guidance that may help the entrepreneurs look into the future of the FMCG sector and allow making strategic decisions regarding the management of companies and their departments. The Congress is also an opportunity for sharing and promoting the environmental issues and taking care of the healthy future for the next generations.
The trade sector faces a lot of challenges. Trade and production companies and their surroundings in Poland and the world are in the period of extremely dynamic and fascinating digital and technological transformation which will affect their future. Those changes, which, one the one hand, are a huge challenge, but also an opportunity for development and getting closer to the con-sumer, will be discussed by the Congress guests.
The most important issues that will be raised during this year's edition of the Congress include: consumer trends and health, labour market and automation, digital and technological transformation, natural environment and its protection, including the idea of circular economy, as well as cashless payments, Big Data analysis and offer personalisation, mobility and customer expe-rience, omnichannel and e-commerce solutions, ideas of high-speed retail and trade without borders, as well as fundamental issues regarding the strategies for development, sales, marketing or building a value chain.
