Explore the unique retail market in Iceland & Reykjavik – The city of bold contrasts!
Reykjavik is a city of bold contrasts; cosmopolitan and small-town, vibrant and sophisticated, young-at-heart and yet full of history. The capital has a total population of around 120,000, and 60% of Iceland’s population of 329,000 lives in the Greater Reykjavik area.
The economy in Iceland has had a robust expansion driven by strong private consumption and a boom in tourism during the last couple of years. Join us for two days of interesting meetings with local retail & shopping center experts for an inside view.
