The Retail Australasia Summit and Cards & Payments 2015, the Winter Gift & Homewares Fair and the NZ Social Media Forum are all coming up during the next two months.
First up on May 5 and 6 is Retail Australasia at the Hilton Hotel in Auckland. This annual conference and industry expo has been going for seven years – it will this year focus on customer-centric multichannel retailing with a special emphasis on payments.
A stellar line-up of speakers from top New Zealand businesses has been secured. We’re particularly excited to hear from Green Cross Health CEO Grant Bai; Ezibuy COO Andrea Scown; Barkers e-commerce manager Staci Scott and the CEO of Warehouse Stationery and Torpedo 7, Pejman Okhovat.
A month later on June 7 to 9 is the Winter Gift & Homewares Fair at Horncastle Arena in Christchurch. It seems like barely a day has passed since we covered the Autumn Fair in Auckland, but now it’s Canterbury’s turn to host this trade-only fair.
The NZ Social Media Forum brings together some of New Zealand’s biggest social media names, many of which are also retailers. It runs through June 15 and 16 at the Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland. Learn about how Lewis Road Creamery supported the runaway success of its fresh chocolate milk with social media, and hear more about Spark and Warehouse Stationery’s campaigns.
