With GlobalShop 2012 just days away, the Chute Gerdeman team is looking forward to taking part in our industry’s premier event for store design, visual merchandising and at-retail marketing. We’ll be on the ground in Las Vegas from beginning to end, February 29-March 2—walking the show, meeting with clients, partners and friends, and keeping up on the latest happenings in retail trends and technologies.
If you’re going to GlobalShop, be sure to attend Chute Gerdeman’s session on Wednesday, February 29. The conference session, “When Visual Creativity Trumps Budget: What Indie Retailers Can Teach Big Brands,” begins at 1:30pm. Chute Gerdeman’s VP, Intelligence & Brand Strategy, Joanna Felder, VP, Visual Strategy, Bess Liscio and VP, Brand & Marketing, Jay Highland, will co-present the session. More and more, real retail innovation is showing up around the corner and in the neighborhood at our favorite independent stores. Whether it’s an old-school “Mom & Pop” or a one-off new shop, small, indie retailers are showing the big guys how it’s done, and done well. The CG team will incorporate lessons learned from the retailer perspective, and present ways in which major retail chains could incorporate some big ideas.
In addition to Joanna, Bess and Jay, several other Chute Gerdeman associates will be on hand, including Denny Gerdeman, Elle Chute and George Nauman, in the new Design Inspiration Showcase. If you would like to arrange a meeting, feel free to contact us at email@example.com or just stop by Booth 3044A.
Be sure to check back before, during and after GlobalShop as we’ll be blogging live from the show, with some on-the-fly observations and retail reporting from Sin City. This year, what happens in Vegas will be featured here!
We look forward to hearing from you or catching up at the show.
