ATLANTA, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's challenging retail environment, stores must constantly reinvent themselves to capture the hearts and dollars of skittish, Internet-dependent consumers. At the same time, budgetary pressure makes it harder to fund full-scale redesigns and massive resets.
Increasingly, retail trends point to fleets of stores in constant flux. Cross-discipline teams armed with deep knowledge of their customers need to act quickly and cost-effectively to keep stores fresh and inviting. A preview of future retailing experiences will be on display in the exhibit hall and among the high-profile retail experts speaking at GlobalShop March 10-12 in Las Vegas. The event will help retailers:
- cost-effectively enhance their stores on a consistent basis;
- better understand and serve their customers; and
- offer looks that dazzle shoppers and enhance the brand experience.
GlobalShop exhibitors will showcase over 10,000 products from the newest POP (point-of-purchase) displays and store fixtures to digital signage and technology solutions, as well as marketing services. From sequined graphics to motion-activated messaging, the products at GlobalShop show retail trends pointing to:
- More flexible fixtures, for quick changes that are easy and cost-effective. POP GlobalShop exhibitors are showing products that facilitate quick changes and offer a compelling in-store consumer experience.
- From mannequins to display fabrics, visual merchandising that punches up the WOW! factor and offers more custom options to retailers.
- Digital, audio and multi-media to capture more attention at the point of sale.
- Demand for more energy-efficient and cost-efficient building products to lower operating expenses and support retailers who wish to quality for LEED® and other green building designations.
