Topic Discussion Visual Merchandising: Attract | Engage | Motivate

Presented by Chute Gerdeman and Lextant

Successful leaders know their mission should be to constantly evolve the retail landscape, exceed the expectations of the next generation of shoppers, and shape the future of the industry as we know it. To shine a light on the path forward, we’ve assembled a panel of recipients of the Markopoulos Award –an honor given to individuals who stand out from the pack and embody leadership in retail merchandising and design.

These industry pioneers will share personal, interesting, and unique stories about how each began their careers, what they’ve learned along the way, and why they’ve renewed their passion and motivation along their journeys. Join us for a lively discussion packed with dynamic insights on the retail universe and the world at large.
