About The Retail

The Retail Roundtable events are invitation-only breakfast or dinner and networking events designed for enterprise level leaders – owners, c-level executives and senior managers in retail and retail supporting organisations.

The need for The Retail Roundtable, its themes and topics arose from our conversations with retail enterprise level leaders and executives as they battle to develop appropriate, actionable and swift responses to the dynamic shifts in the operating environment occasioned by the fast-changing and demanding consumers  preferences, an aggressively growing competition from nimble new entrants, a rising ecommerce trends, more appreciation of technology, and more agile business models disrupting the Nigeria retail landscape and changes in socio-political environment amongst others.

The Retail Roundtable therefore brings strategic and behind-the-scenes insights from retail thought and practice leaders on how enterprise level leaders can reposition their retail businesses in the light for current and emerging shifts.


The Nigeria Retail Outlook 2019Globally, the the industry is going through a challenging phase. In Nigeria, the retail landscape is experiencing a transformation that is shaped and driven by changing consumer preferences, heightened competition from nimble new entrants, a rising ecommerce trends, and dynamic socio-political environment.

In particular, as the country heads for a general election in 2019 and with political calculations daily shaping the issues in the socio-political space, winning and visionary business owners and leaders cannot afford to stay aloof.

The country is projected to grow though sluggishly from 1.9% in 2018 to 2.3% in 2019, but there are clouds in the horizon that may possibly cause the economy to under-perform, according to International Monetary Fund (IMF). Growth is however expected to gain steam going forward thanks to rising oil production following a significant ramp-up in infrastructure investment in recent years and rising oil price. Moreover, softer inflation and improved exchange rate liquidity should buoy domestic demand dynamics in 2019.

However, political uncertainty and downside risks related to the 2019 elections and politics is high, likely putting economic reforms on the backburner and delay the 2019 budget. Governance may infact be on recess!

These issues clouds the outlook for 2019. However, one thing is certain: whatever the outcome of the 2019 elections, Nigeria will not be the same again…..



Join other retail industry stalwarts at The Retail Roundtable in a serene atmosphere of conversation and breakfast to discuss these and many other issues that will shape the development and growth of the Nigeria retail industry and retail businesses in 2019 and beyond.
