IKEA Company Visit: Meet the Management of IKEA Japan

  • 14 May 2019 18:30 - 20:30

  • IKEA Tokyo-Bay

The Management  team of IKEA Japan invites SCCJ Members for a special evening at their store in Tokyo-Bay, Funabashi. 

An excellent opportunity to get insights and first-hand information about IKEA, a true legendary Swedish company founded in 1943. 
The world of retail is evolving quickly and the demands from customers are changing. Ecommerce is re-defining the retail landscape and sustainability is key to win over customers.

Why did IKEA decide to open up a new store in Harajuku?
How to produce environmental friendly products without raising prices?
Will I be able to rent furniture from IKEA? 

Hear the story - and the future of IKEA Japan directly from the Management. You are of course welcome to ask questions directly at the event.
