Asia Fast Forward

ABOUT
Asia Pacific Retailers Convention and Exhibition (APRCE)

The Asia Pacific Retailers Convention & Exhibition (APRCE) is the major project of the Federation of Asia-Pacific Retailers Associations (FAPRA).

Held every two years, the event has become Asia's biggest and longest running retail convention and exhibition since it was first held in 1983 in Tokyo, Japan. The Philippines last played host to the APRCE in 1993.

The APRCE's objectives are two-pronged: to discover new approaches to the latest issues facing the region's retailers and highlight innovative solutions that can help retailers differentiate themselves from competitors, to deliver greater value to consumers in Asia and Pacific region.
