About Asia-Pacific Retailers Convention & Exhibition (APRCE)
Asia-Pacific Retailers Convention & Exhibition (APRCE) debuted in 1983 in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, Japan. APRCE is the main activity of the Federation of Asia-Pacific Retailers Associations (FAPRA), which has 17 association members from 17 countries. It is the longest running biennial regional retail conference in Asia-Pacific. Through this strong bond, the many conventions that have taken place over the years have grown from strength to strength.
The host country will be selected by FAPRA members through a bidding process held every 2 years, and the event has become Asia-Pacific’s largest retail convention and exhibition since it was first held in 1983. APRCE aims to discover new approaches to the latest issues faced by the region’s retailers and to highlight innovative solutions that can help retailers to differentiate themselves from their competitors and to deliver greater value to consumers in the Asia-Pacific region.
The 2013 conference was held in Istanbul, Turkey and the 2015 conference will be held in Manila, Philippines.
