Industry to come together at the International TCG Retail Summit

Leading electrical retailers and brands will congregate for the sixth International TCG Retail Summit in Geneva in April.

Taking place on 2-4 April 2019, top management of the leading EMEA and national tech retailers, as well as top-level executives from the technical consumer goods (TCG) industry, will come together in Geneva to share the actual challenges and look upon the opportunities that they generate.
