A GREENER AUSTRALIA LEADS TO AN ECO-RETAILER
Australian consumers are becoming more environmentally conservative, according to a recent study released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics*, and retailers are equally becoming more aware of the importance of adopting green practices for their businesses.
In response to this Retail Expo Australasia, 12-14 August 2008, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, has launched an all new Eco Retailer zone to meet consumer demands for environmentally friendly retail outlets and practices.
Aiming to reduce the retail industrys ecological footprint, the new Eco Retailer section will showcase the latest green innovations, concepts and strategies available in national and international markets.
"Because we are all consumers, retailers cant afford to ignore the need to adopt environmentally considerate practices and services, as well as offer green products to their customers, regardless of whether they are huge department stores or independent outlets," said Peter OFlynn, Exhibition Manager, Retail Expo Australasia.
"Australians are fast becoming more environmentally aware and Retail Expo Australasia has responded to that with Eco Retailer to ensure retail industry members are at the forefront of their game."
The Eco Retailer zone will feature alongside seven other key product areas, including Retail Technology; Shopfitting and Store Design; Security Technology; Business Services; Digital Signage; and Visual Merchandising.
Returning to Sydney after two years in Melbourne, Retail Expo Australasia will feature more than 220 local and international exhibitors, many who will use the exhibition as a platform to launch new products, innovations and technologies.
With an anticipated 6,500 visitors, including key decision makers, buyers and managers, the exhibition is the must attend trade event for retailers who are keen to ensure their business is environmentally friendly, technologically savvy, aesthetically chic and constantly increasing profit margins.
Retail Expo Australasia will be held in conjunction with Australias premier retail conference National Retail Forum.
