About the exhibition:
As retailers from all sectors, both bricks and clicks, vie for the consumer purse, creating the right customer experience is critical in driving footfall and encouraging purchase.
Look, feel and function are key and demand huge investment in, and constant review of, design and implementation. Every detail must provide the customer with a seamless and stimulating experience, and that dictates myriad decisions about the way retailers present themselves: from colour and materials to space management and communication.
Retail Design Expo 2015, from Legend Exhibitions, is the exciting new event that will connect the many elements of the ultra-creative retail design sector. It will be a prime showcase for store design, visual merchandising and branding - a vibrant hub for a dynamic industry.
