The Summit

The 8° edition of Retail Executive Summit is an exclusive opportunity for executive-level networking and leadership development as well as updates on economic trends and business strategies about the present and future of retail business. Every year, this event takes place in the charming location of Villa d’Este, Cernobbio.

This is always by invitation-only event with no journalists allowed to participate in order to recreate a friendly but frank conversation between decision-makers in the industry and the distribution sector, to join in thought-provoking discussions about driving industry-wide growth through effective policies.

GALA DINNER | Since 1873, Villa D’Este has been the premier destination for summit meetings and extraordinary special events. Designed for large assemblies, it is a venue in which every detail of the room contributes to the success of the conference. We offer various special events throughout the summit including business gala dinner, tasting, cocktail hours, networking lunch
