The Singapore Retailers Association (SRA announces the Wunderground Festival 2023 – a groundbreaking three-year initiative that aims to reshape the way we experience shopping and lifestyle.
Embrace a New Era
At the heart of the Wunderground Festival lies a powerful mission – to breathe new life into the retail and lifestyle sector by infusing it with immersive experiences, innovation, and excitement. This initiative is set to captivate audiences through urban and heartland festivals that encourage experimentation, creativity, and the adoption of immersive elements that will captivate and enthrall consumers.
The Journey Ahead
The Wunderground Festival 2023 marks the first step of this transformative journey, with two more annual editions planned to follow suit. Each year’s effort will bring unique perspectives to the forefront: the first year will foster cross-brand collaborations under the “Wunderground” umbrella, the second will establish a flagship event for residents, and the third will focus on inviting overseas brands to join the Festival.
Driven by Vision 2025
Aligned with SRA’s Roadmap Vision 2025 of “Inspiring Retail Experiences,” this dynamic platform fosters collaboration among retail and lifestyle industry players. These collaborations are poised to unveil innovative products and services that cater to evolving consumer needs and expectations.
Reaching Diverse Audiences

By doing so, it seeks to drive local collaborations into international markets while also enticing new talent to the retail and lifestyle sector. These emerging experiential business models are set to play a pivotal role in revitalizing Singapore’s retail landscape.
