19th edition | March 13 – 15, 2019

Under the main theme entitled FACING THE FUTURE, the Progresiv Conference, the largest business event in the retail & FMCG Romanian market will gather around 450 professionals at the International Hotel Sinaia during March 13 – 15, 2019.

In recent years, the terms that have best defined retail and FMCG industries have been innovation, effervescence, expansion and “out of the box.” We have often been surprised by the strategy of some players to overcome their boundaries and approach completely new business areas. During the 19th edition of the Progresiv Conference, we will find out if these directions have also been a winning card to ensure business growth on medium and long term.

This year’s event comes with a new, more dynamic approach that will give you a broad perspective, from macroeconomic to microbusiness, and the lines to follow in 2019 and far beyond.
The best part of the future is that it comes every day (Abraham Lincoln).

With this thinking in mind, we are looking every to put new bricks at the foundation of a healthy growth in the retail & FMCG market, every year.

For the 2019 and following years, the industry’s great challenge is to maintain the upward trend of business, as analysts predict moderation in consumption and blurring uptrading. All this will come amid the drop in optimism and the decline in consumer confidence in the economy.

The change must be a constant no matter what the financial performance looks like and prepare the business for the future. The 19th edition of the Progresiv Conference brings answers to the keys to the future.
