ODEL to host international retail conference

Retail professionals from some of the World's top department stores are due in Sri Lanka this month for a three-day conference that will generate valuable exposure for the country's retail sector.

The 10th Commercial Director Conference of the Intercontinental Group of Department Stores (IGDS), the worlds largest association of department stores, is to be hosted in Colombo by ODEL, the only Sri Lankan member of this exclusive group. Representatives of IGDS member department stores will attend the event, which takes place from February 27 and 29.

ODEL is one of the newest members of IGDS, having been conferred membership in January 2011. Among the association's members are some of the leading and most respected department stores in the world including Selfridges, Saks 5th Avenue, Printemps, Parkson, Beco, FEDS, Shopper's Stop, M&S, Woolworths, Central, Lotte, Matahari, Ruston, and Tangs.

"The decision of IGDS to convene the annual IGDS Commercial Director Conference in Colombo exposes Sri Lanka to some of the largest retailers of the world and represents a significant opportunity for the country's innovative home grown brands," said ODEL's founder and CEO Otara Gunewardene. "It will facilitate the establishment of business links that could help these brands venture into overseas markets."

She said delegates to the conference would be looking out for suppliers of unique products that they can have in their stores.
