    The panel discussion will certainly be a good one. We will have experts speaking about the benefits of shopping local to the local econimy and community and others speaking about the way retailers can benefit from selling online.

    We will also be unveiling our plans to set up the countries first Cross Channel Retail Operations Centre on the South Coast Of NSW and I will be speaking about the Future of Retailing.
