The 2nd Global Department Store Summit gathered in New York over 300 prominent executives from around the world, including an unprecedented 54 department store CEOs. Retailers talked about trends, shared best practices and discussed the improving environment. The delegates benefited a lot from the presentations of CEO speakers and from dynamic panel discussions.

During the Official Dinner, the Department Store Award Ceremony celebrated Selfridges as the winner of the prestigious 'Department Store of the Year' Award over world famous contenders Bloomingdale's and Lane Crawford.
