European Retail Day is an event organized by Forum Europe, EuroCommerce, Euro Coop, ERRT and Independent Retail Europe. It focuses on the ever evolving retail sector. Consumer behavior is changing, because of technology and the internet, so it’s important how retailers respond to these fundamental changes. Of course, there are many challenges because of technology and digitization, but these can also be used to give consumers a vibrant and exciting shopping experience, both in store and online.

On November 30, the European retail industry will gather in Brussels for the European Retail Day. With this event, the organizers want to further boost the development of Europe’s single market project. They want to discuss how the retail sector could contribute to this, and they also want to analyze future steps needed to ensure the growth and global competitiveness of the sector.
