NRCE Overall Chairman

Retailers' Role in Achieving a Sustainable Lifestyle by JEANNIE E. JAVELOSA interests me a lot. Ms. Jeannie E. Javelosa is the co-founder and director of ECHOstore (Environment Community Hope Organization) Sustainable Lifestyle; a pioneering green retail store focused on selling fair trade and community-created products.

Sustainability can drive a new way of looking at problems and opportunities to save money and build brand in the retail sector and that is where I want to see improvements.

Successfully engaging new generation shoppers will be well-covered in this event as other topics as boosting customer experience using store design and licensing opportunities for retailers are presented by field experts. Coming on the heels of two successful NRCEs which zeroed in on Asian brands, this year's gathering moves forward with talks on personalized branding and transforming employees into brand ambassadors.

There will be two panel discussions each day at NRCE. On the conference’s first day, the morning panel discussion will delve into digital marketing and online commerce. The afternoon panel discussion, on the other hand, is entitled “Global Brands in Local Shores: How Local Brands Can Compete and Succeed vis-à-vis International Brands."

The roundtable on the conference’s second day will feature luminaries from retail and property development. Entitled “Retail Entertainment: Creating a New Level of Customer Experience," the morning panel discussion explores how shopping and leisure are intertwined. The conference’s last panel discussion is set to put participants in a hopeful, forward-thinking mood. Entitled “The New Turks of Retailing,” the last panel will feature the young entrepreneurs behind today’s hottest brands and franchises.

The 21st NRCE is proudly presented by PLDT Alpha Enterprise, SM Department Store, Hewlett Packard, Robinsons Malls, Araneta Center, Ayala Malls, Meralco, IBM Philippines, DHL Supply Chain Phils., Inc., Festival Supermall, Wilcon Depot, Celine, The Philippine Star, BusinessWorld, ABS CBN, Schutzen, Mobext, Inc., Crossover 105.1., Entrepreneur, Focalcast, Q Creatives, Cylix Technologies, Mediamagnet, Catalyst Media, Infinite Grafix, Travel Club, APL Logistics, Avolution, Live Media, Starmall and Bayantel.
