How does retail remain innovative in a world where shopping is evolving apace? Aptly themed 'Un-Cover', the event will bring together retail's masterminds from across the country and the globe, to delve into the latest sector trends and research. Last year, this event attracted over 1300 delegates.

Frank Berkeley, managing executive of Nedbank Corporate Property Finance, says, "We are proud to sponsor the SACSC Congress. This key industry event has shown consistent growth without losing its essence. It is an opportunity for delegates to debate and discover and, by doing so, to advance their prospects as well as those of the entire sector. The congress consistently challenges the status quo in the retail sector."

This sponsorship is an endorsement of the strength of retail in South Africa and an investment in the future of the sector. For the company, the sponsorship meets its objective of achieving a focused approach to its property sector support. "This is a platform where we can have impact because of our knowledge in the industry and the retail sector. It is a great way to enable investment opportunities," says Berkeley.

For SACSC, this sponsorship continues its goal to give members the greatest possible value. SACSC CEO Amanda Stops says, "SACSC is committed to giving its members and congress delegates more ways, ideas and tools to help them thrive. This sponsorship is a fundamental step to continue our progress in delivering value to our members and take the SACSC Congress to the next level.

"There's an incredibly strong alignment between Nedbank Corporate Property Finance and the SACSC. We're both are determined to unleash the power of a prospering retail sector in South Africa," concludes Stops.
