The ARA’s purpose is to make a positive impact to the Australian retail industry and enable retail businesses to thrive and their customers to benefit whilst facing the unprecedented challenges due to Covid-19 and into the future.
As the peak industry body, our voice is powerful and we use it to drive positive change. We work collaboratively with our strategic partners to produce and support a calendar of thought-leadership events and initiatives throughout the year that provoke, inspire, educate and give back to our retail community.
We provide our members access to these events via a range of virtual and face-to-face experiences – including executive lunches, briefings, conferences, gala awards, forums, webinars, roundtables, workshops, training and other special events and co-created initiatives.
The ARA partners with leading industry brands to produce comprehensive research and whitepapers on specific topics or key issues surrounding the sector. These resources vary across retail subsets including sector trends, digital and e-commerce, customer demographics, marketing, reputation, supply chain, sustainability, workplace compliance, WHS, risk, security, superannuation and payments.
We’d love to hear from you!
