While the UK slept through Storm Doris early on Thursday morning, the IGD Asia team were busy in Singapore for our first international event: the RedMart Trade Briefing.
Over 200 leading regional and local suppliers met RedMart, the largest online retailer in Singapore (and now a division of Lazada, owned by Alibaba, the world's largest online retailer,) to hear their exciting plans for the year ahead, how the retailer will continue the strong momentum in 2017 and how best to collaborate with suppliers.
IGD presented the key trends impacting the Asia grocery market in 2017, the future of retailing in the region as well as announcing that Singapore’s online grocery market is set to triple in growth over the next three years.
Attendees now have a greater understanding of RedMart’s ambition, making use of the multiple networking opportunities with RedMart’s Senior Team, facilitated by IGD.
With IGD’s growing Asia Team based in Singapore, this heralds the start of a new era for international retail analysis that will benefit members and non-members alike.
