The InRetail exhibition has been completely transformed for 2011 and Organizers DMG :: Events are pleased with the amount of interest it has generated from major retail stakeholders. According to a recently published report conducted by RCNOS entitled 'Middle East Retail Sector Forecast to 2013' the Middle East is showing signs of steady growth as investors recognise the potential of this lucrative market.

Michaella Black, Project Manager InRetail, comments, "We have received an overwhelming response from the suppliers and retailers specialising in the latest information technology. Not only will the InRetail show deliver the latest retail technologies to help retailers overcome complex and challenging issues, but the visitors will also have the chance to be inspired with an exciting array of retail solutions which will be displayed at the show."

"Every retailer needs to implement management systems and the challenge lies in selecting which solutions are best suited to the individual retailer as they each have their own set of objectives and specific requirements. The InRetail exhibition will help retailers to identify and evaluate technologies so that retailers can streamline efficiencies, add to the consumer experience and build brand loyalty whilst optimizing store performances to increase overall profitability," said Black.

Economic factors such as a diverse market landscape with stabilised crude oil prices, a high population of expatriates and continued strong consumer spending along with good tourism links demonstrates why the MENA region still has room for growth.

Michaella Black continues by saying "Leading retailers and franchises such as Landmark Group, Jashanmal, Chalhoub Group, EMKE, Russo's Coal Fired Italian Kitchen and MAF are all investing in expansion plans by rolling out stores and malls across the UAE and other Middle Eastern countries, highlighting some of the business opportunities for retail companies that this market currently has to offer."
