Why Retail Marketing?
Asia’s retail industry is witnessing rapid development and expansion as the growth of emerging economies fuel growing consumer spending. From fashion to furniture, home appliances to high-tech gadgets, sporting goods to supermarkets, consumers are flexing their buying muscles and the choices are many.
As the consumers face a wide range of choices and array of brands, traditional advertising and marketing approaches are no longer enough for brands trying to hold on to or build market share. The battle for the consumer’s attention and favor is now being fought, not the living room in front of the television or in the pages of newspapers and magazines or even amongst the jungle of OOH advertising; the battle is being waged in the retail environment, at the very moment when the consumer reaches out for a product or chooses which store to enter.
At-Retail Marketing is growing in its importance and challenging the dominance of traditional advertising methods and approaches. Retail, marketing and advertising professionals can no longer ignore the value of At-Retail Marketing has on their brand and more importantly, its direct impact on sales revenue.
Welcome to the At-Retail Marketing Asia 2007 Conference and Showcase….
At-Retail Marketing Asia 2007 Showcase
The Showcase serves as an excellent platform for service providers, Consultants, Retail Technology firms, Retail Equipment suppliers and shopping malls / retail centers to showcase relevant services, products and facilities to the retail industry, brand managers, marketing and advertising professionals.
Exhibitors will be taking part in the following pavilions:
• The Retail Space Pavilion
Location! Location! Location! New shopping malls and retail centres are springing up all over China. While this offers opportunities for brand owners and store operators to expand and reach more consumers, there is still much to consider in choosing the right location considering the high cost of setting up and maintaining each store.
This pavilion will feature the newest shopping malls being built and retail spaces available throughout China. It will be an opportunity for developers and property agents to introduce upcoming retail property projects to brand managers and marketing managers looking for new and exciting retail space.
• Retail Display Pavilion
The Battle for Attention! Retail marketing inevitably depends largely on visual impact. How does one improve the retail environment? How can the retail ‘experience’ be improved to encourage buying? How can one attract the consumer’s attention amidst all the competition? How to convert a browser into a buyer?
This pavilion will showcase equipment, products and the latest technology available for retail marketing purposes. Visitors will be able to see first-hand the various ‘weapons’ they can add to their arsenal in the battle for consumer attention and sales. Exhibitors will be provided with space and opportunities to provide ‘live’ demo of their products and technology.
• The Retail Consultant Pavilion
With retail marketing proving to be ever more important and becoming increasingly effective in branding and generating direct sales, retail operators and brand managers are increasing placing more emphasis on it. However, as a relatively new discipline, there is much need for consultants and specialist agencies to advice on the best approaches and the most effective strategies.
This pavilion allows At-Retail Marketing consultants and specialist agencies to showcase their portfolio and their services to industry professionals.
