Plus, you’ll learn about their national retail program “THE DRESS SHOP,” incorporating three important marketing components for your business.
Next up is the Daily Strut at noon featuring our Emerging Designers Showcase. This will immediately be followed by our seminar Why She Buys: The New Strategy for Reaching the World’s Most Powerful Consumers Bridget Brennan, CEO of Female Factor and author of “Why She Buys,”she’ll educate you about the fundamentals of gender psychology and the global trends driving women’s purchasing decisions. With women buying nearly 80% of all consumer products, this is a market you certainly want to court. She’ll provide you with a roadmap for how to evaluate sales, marketing, branding and product design from a female perspective. A book sale and signing will follow. Both of these events will be on Floor 2.
We’ve got a full evening planned beginning with the introduction of our new 12th floor with more special occasion designs than ever! Celebrate with us and take a look around.
