Taking place from June 11 to 13, 2024, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore, the event will this year host Australian retail on a global stage. 

ARA CEO Paul Zahra said the industry expo provides a fantastic opportunity for retailers to learn about the latest trends and innovations.

“We’re excited to support this milestone industry event and look forward to collaborating with retailers across the globe to learn more about the latest retail solutions and ground-breaking technologies.
