Working groups

We organise working groups in each of our research areas, providing an ideal platform for sharing experience and networking. These exclusive groups, which are made up of experts from our roughly 750 member companies, meet several times a year to discuss specific problems and trends in retailing and to work out solutions or recommendations.
