Who are we?
 
The World Union of Wholesale Markets (WUWM) is a non-profit association that aims to promote the international exchange of information on wholesale and retail markets, with a view to improving their construction, organisation and management.

WUWM pursues its aims through: the organisation of conferences and specialised meetings; the global collection and registration of data on markets; through the publication of reports and studies; and by exchanging experience, knowledge and expertise for the overall benefit of the membership. A further WUWM objective is to pool this expertise and provide the authorities responsible for the establishment and management of new markets with the necessary professional advice.

WUWM is open to all wholesale and retail markets and/or their national and regional associations, or local authorities that own or operate wholesale and retail markets, as well as private market companies, institutes and organisations. Firms and individuals interested in wholesale and retail marketing may also become associated members.
