A unique opportunity for the large format retail sector to get together
Large Format Retail Association Forums
The LFRA conducts national quarterly Forums for its’ members. These Forums offer a unique opportunity for the Large Format Retail sector to get together to share information and ideas, address current issues and promote the needs of the Large Format Retail industry.
A typical Forum agenda sees an ‘in-camera’ session for LFRA Retail Members in the morning followed by sessions open to Associate members, followed by a luncheon and afternoon session for members and guests. The sessions feature guest speakers such as state planning ministers and high level industry leaders.
Each Forum is followed by a cocktail and networking session where LFRA members, government representatives and guests can share ideas and views in an informal setting over drinks and canapés.
To conclude the Forum a ‘members-only’ Post-Forum dinner is held.
