GlobalShop 2013 kicks off in just under three weeks, and 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 Chicago from beginning to end, April 16–18, walking the show, meeting with clients, partners and friends, and keeping up on the latest happenings in retail trends and technologies.
CG takes the stage
Two of Chute Gerdeman’s creative directors will be on the podium for an exciting session that’s sure to be a hit. Join us and see how the consumer trend for healthier living is a leading influence on retail across a variety of channels.
“Healthy Lifestyles = Healthy Stores”
Wednesday, April 17 at 1:30pm
Chute Gerdeman Presenters:
Joanna Felder, VP, Intelligence & Brand Strategy
Bess Liscio, VP, Visual Strategy
Explore the cultural and personal dynamics that are making glowing skin and a healthy lifestyle the new must haves. Active apparel is becoming mainstream fashion—with high-style options that go from the gym to high street—and surprising new players are turning healthy fare into on-the-go fuel. We’ll explore how this trend is shaping retail from apparel to footwear to c-store innovation, and the consumer dynamics behind the movement. Join us as we highlight retailers who are shaping the trend right now.
CG at the Design Inspiration Showcase
In addition to Joanna and Bess, several other Chute Gerdeman senior leaders will be on hand in the Design Inspiration Showcase, including Denny Gerdeman, Elle Chute, Brian Shafley and George Nauman. We’ll be on the Expo floor throughout the week, sharing CG’s unique capabilities and industry expertise. While you’re at the show be sure to visit us in booth number 3030-I in the Design Inspiration Showcase.
