About the Event

Don’t miss the number one event on the retail calendar – newly expanded to two-days.

This influential conference will see the largest line-up of retail leaders ever on stage.
This agenda-setting #ARALeadersForum on 21-22 February 2024 at the ICC Sydney is not to be missed!


A great chance to network. Great variety of speakers. No presentation went too long.

Highlights were retail outlook session, CEO discussion and President’s speech. Interesting to hear from leaders in the industry.
