New Zealand Retailers Association: 2009 National Conference



After a 5 year hiatus, the New Zealand Retailers Association hosted a one day conference at Sky City Auckland Convention Centre. The conference was focussed on delivering ideas and strategies to retailers on how to continue to survive and grow in the current market conditions, as well as how to plan for the future. In addition to the conference, the NZRA also launched its Retail Hall of Fame Awards (to be held annually from 2009). Speakers included the Prime Minister of New Zealand, the Hon John Key, Dr Roderick Deane, Alan Gourdie (Telecom Retail), Roy Tavenor (RED Design), Ross Mcdonald (Google), Andrew Cavanagh (ACRS), and Steve Ogden-Barnes (ACRS).
