Networking – Assistance with the growth of your business.

Networking is one of the most common reasons businesses join the Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers. Your participation in the Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers events, The Suppliers and Retailers Summit and The Annual Retailers Awards allows for introductions to other businesses and individuals, enabling you to develop relationships with other members. The Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers also offers other promotional and advertising opportunities such as a flyer distribution service and advertising in the quarterly RETAILER Magazine and Periodic Newsletters. In this regard the CZR has over the last two years held several networking events to achieve this objective. Below are some the networking events which the CZR has held and will be holding going forward.

  • Zimbabwe International Retailers Summit/Indaba
  • CZR National Retailers & Wholesalers Awards
  • Monthly discussion forums
  • CZR Annual Membership meeting
  • Retail Development Trainings
Networking with other players under the auspices of the CZR helps you improve your standards towards excellence in the highly competitive retail industry.

From peer-to-peer networking events to professional development sessions; from business leader roundtables to policy committees, the Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers offers you plenty of opportunities to get involved in activities that will allow you to grow professionally as well as influence policy and decision-making for the benefit of all Zimbabweans. The Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers communicates with its members in several ways through regular mailings with notices for special events and Government Watch (our policy update) magazines.
