Women’s Wear Daily will host its inaugural Retail 20/20 Forum: Tokyo on Feb. 28, 2018.
Cohosted with Lumine Co. Ltd., a major developer of full-service shopping centers in Japan, the event is set to attract top executives from Japan, the U.S., Greater Asia and other regions.
Amber Mundinger, Fairchild Live’s vice president, New Ventures and general manager, Summits + Events, said, “We are thrilled to produce our first live event in Japan and bring WWD’s exciting fashion, retail and beauty content to life in one of the most prominent fashion and business capitals in the world.”
WWD’s premier retail event, Retail 20/20 takes place each year in both New York and London. In addition to those two markets, WWD Retail 20/20: Tokyo will continue annually through 2020, in partnership with Lumine.
“Lumine prides itself on innovation and not only pioneering, but creating new markets and ‘Life Value.’ Through this approach, we hope to work as a cornerstone of further growth by revitalizing the Japanese retail industry, including the development of human resources. We greatly look forward to our upcoming partnership with WWD,” said Yoshiaki Arai, chairman of Lumine.
