Creating a Community with Your Brand

Daily: 10 – 11 a.m.

Consumers, especially millennials, care deeply about what a brand is doing for the world around them. This session examines the ways in which brands have embraced this theme and how they are seeing results on both large and small scales. We will also determine what form of social responsibility is suitable for your brand.


Set the Mood with Curated Collections

Daily: 1 – 2 p.m.

Why is it important to select product groupings that help tell a story, evoke a mood, create a theme and, above all, offer the consumer the feeling that they are purchasing something exclusive? Customization and personalization are also part of this market trend. Curated collections spark interest and excitement and keep your customers guessing what’s coming up next!


The Real Meaning of Buzzwords

Daily: 3 – 4 p.m.

We are constantly exposed to new industry buzzwords such as "luxury brands", "customization", "heat mapping", "omnichannel", "influencer", etc. In this seminar, we determine what these words really mean, and how they can be applied to our business in a way that peaks your customers’ interest.
