CHICAGO, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Playboy Enterprises and Lyons Consulting Group are teaming up to present at the Internet Retailer Conference & Expo in Chicago at McCormick Place West next week. Rich Lyons, CEO and president of Lyons Consulting Group and Scott G. Stephen, executive vice president at Playboy Enterprises will share e-commerce expertise in a lively, interactive session titled "Give the Lady What She Wants: 10 Web Features Smart Shoppers Demand." The session is featured in the Merchandising & Design track of the conference and is scheduled for Thursday, June 10 from 2:00 to 2:45 p.m.

"Smart shoppers are busy," said Stephen. "They know what they want and now more than ever, they're using the Internet to get it for a lower price. In this presentation, we'll share insight on the features and functionality smart shoppers expect from your site."

"We're thrilled to partner with Playboy – one of the world's best known brands – on this presentation," said Lyons. "Making your site intuitive for online shoppers is more than a competitive advantage, it's crucial to your business, as more and more savvy shoppers leverage the web to find and compare products to make informed purchases."

Here is the complete presentation abstract: Standards are developing in online retailing—driven by consumer expectations of what they will encounter at a web site. In the tradition of mass retailing, the merchant will have to respond to consumer expectations. As Marshall Field famously said, "Give the lady what she wants." In this session, a design expert and an e-retailer will lay out 10 features that consumers expect at retail web sites and that e-merchants can offer easily or inexpensively. The Internet Retailer Conference & Expo is happening June 8 – 10, 2010 at McCormick Place West in Chicago. Lyons Consulting Group is exhibiting at the show; attendees can visit them in booth number 569.
