/ EINpresswire.com / Retail in Asia has announced the launch of its free business-to-business (B2B) website, RetailinAsia.com, providing retailers and the retail industry with the latest news from around the region and a platform for professional networking.

Retail in Asia has been created by a team of industry experts looking for a single, comprehensive source of news with an Asian perspective.

“We created the site out of our own desire to find out the latest retail industry news from around the region. There are great sites for retail industry news in Europe, the US and within some of the Asia-Pacific markets, but this is the first website in Asia to consolidate news from around the region into one easy format,” says Matt Fletcher, Managing Director of inProjectsGroup and founder of Retail in Asia.

Users of the site will have access to hundreds of stories about the Asian retail market each week, from over 120 news and industry sources. As a news provider, Retail in Asia works by aggregating stories from various websites, providing summaries and hyperlinks for readers to click through to the full story. Users can sign up for weekly or monthly newsletters tailored to their specific interests.

Topics covered on the site include store development, retail systems, consumer trends, supply chain and marketing, as well as retail sectors – among them fashion, luxury, property, health and beauty, food and beverage, lifestyle and leisure, business and finance, technology, supermarkets, and malls.

Retail in Asia is targeted at everyone from C-level executives and brand managers, to consultants and developers, to advertisers and recruitment agencies. In addition, the site provides a valuable news source, and potential entry point for international retailers interested in investing in Asia.
As a professional networking site, Retail in Asia enables users to connect with other industry professionals in the region to share news, advice and ideas.

“We’re really excited about the website and the feedback from some of the retailers already online has been very positive,” says Samantha Stevens, Editor of Retail in Asia. “By the end of 2010, we expect the site to hit over one million page views per month and have over 300,000 registered members.”

Developed by locally based integrated digital marketing agency Moni-Media, the site was six months in design and development, and still has a number of exciting features to roll out. The next phase will include searchable information on malls, city guides for the retail industry, and data and information pages with specialist advice for the retail community.

Registration is free and takes less than one minute.
