Obviously, the world of retail has been turned upside-down. It’s fair to say that nobody has been through anything like this before.
And we wanted to talk about it.
So we gathered a group of retail branding experts to break down both the issues of the moment and the longstanding best practices that create lasting success. If there is ever a time to make sure your brand is connecting with both retail buyers and consumers, it’s right now.
During our discussion, we surface all kinds of great topics, including virtual presentations, fulfillment challenges, and using this current time as effectively as possible. Our industry veterans share both the knowledge their experience provides, and their takes on the current situation.
We hope you’ll take a few minutes to listen. If you have questions about how we can help you manage during these challenging times, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
