10th edition, april 11 – 12, 2019

Under the main theme entitled RETAILERS INVASION, the PPROGRESSIVE Conference, the largest business event in the retail & FMCG Bulgarian market will gather around 250 professionals at the Imperial Hotel&SPA, Plovdiv during April 11 – 12, 2019.


In recent years we have witnessed the invasion of retailers in the Bulgarian FMCG market. The competition to be close to every consumer has led to the ongoing opening of new outlets almost every month. The TOP 5 international retailers operate around 360 outlets in total. The other five retailers in the ranking have around 160 shops according to the latest research provided by PROGRESSIVE. But how is this hegemony going to affect the rest of the players on the market? This would be the main focus of this year’s conference.


Following our core mission to provide the latest information regarding the development of the FMCG sector not only in Bulgaria but worldwide, we have invited again the best speakers. By sharing their insights and experiences, they will prepare us for the upcoming challenges of the market. 


Which are the biggest retailers on the European market and how are they developing?

Which tendencies are shaping the FMCG market in the coming years?

What are the strategies of the international retailers operating on the Bulgarian market?

How to reach new consumers in a highly competitive environment?

Which are the TOP 10 retailers and distributors in this year’s ranking?

What does the next generation of consumers look for? 


The event provides the best opportunity for retailers to meet the experts in the sector, as well as the companies that dare to be innovative and lead the changes.
