Over 35 industry experts will speak at this unmissable weekend of networking, discussion, and solution-building.
RiseUp is funnelling a decade of experience into their first single-industry centred summit: RiseUp Retail. In collaboration with Bazarna, the event will bring together Egypt’s leading retail figures to workshop some of the industry’s biggest challenges.
RiseUp Retail’s theme is #EMBRACE, encapsulating the summit’s aim to pool industry expertise and carve out a space for optimism and success in the wake of recent economic upheaval.
Kicking off this Friday, June 9th, the event will feature a plethora of enlightening talks, engaging panel discussions and fireside chats from inspiring speakers like CEO of 2B Mohamed Grida, CEO of 2oolameme Abdelrahman Selim and COO of Sigma Fit Islam Rashwan. From the impact of AI, sustainability solutions, contemporary marketing strategies, and building trust in the workplace, the summit will dissect the issues most relevant to the retail industry today.
Of course, the expo goes far beyond just talks on a stage. Attendees will also have golden opportunities for vital networking, with mentor, talent, and B2B matchmaking, as well as exhibition stations from industry startups.
The summit will take place from 15:00 to 20:00 on June 9th and the 10th at District 5 in New Cairo. For information on ticketing and full agenda details, head to https://riseup-retail.com/home
