Come learn how you can utilize your relationships, budget and creativity to tap into them as well.

THE RACE FOR SPEED: OVERCOMING INVISIBLE BARRIERS BEFORE NEW RETAIL ENTRANTS EMERGE

As the retail industry sees its challenges become extreme, everyone points to speed to market as a key solution to improving performance. But after 15 years since the public offering of Zara and a multitude of case studies on fast fashion, few additional successful competitors have emerged. The answer lies in the invisible barriers that exist within US retailers. Given the financial benefits of speed there is a race to drive key skills and capabilities and compete with a speed model. If these are not driven from current retailers, new entrants will emerge to change the landscape of US retail.

STATE OF STYLE, LOOKING AHEAD TO SPRING 2018 & BEYOND: PROCESSING PROGRESS

Fashion as always is progressing, moving forward as it reflects our rapidly changing and often disruptive world. The state of style today is multifaceted, attempting to satisfy a diverse consumer population. Technology continues to be a source of newness across all industries, from textile innovation and advancement to new architectural inventions. A growing search for serenity points toward a fashion utopia, where extreme designs coexist with common sense clothing. Optimism is a welcome fantasy, even while fashion retains its darker side. Faster than fast fashion and intentionally mismatched looks compete with a kind of slow-mo style that embraces modern femininity and the classics.

BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX

The Border Adjustment Tax is part of a larger package of corporate tax reforms proposed by House Republicans that would remove the ability for companies to deduct costs of goods sold (COGS) associated with imports on corporate tax filings, and exempt export revenue from income taxes. The net result would be a major increase in corporate taxes for companies that import products into the United States (that do not have offsetting export revenues). This could have a very negative impact on our industry, and could directly cause price increases, layoffs, and potentially bankruptcy. Come learn from top experts what you can do to prep for this potential shift in the industry.

THE RISE OF THE MICRO-INFLUENCER

As a surplus of individuals have over-saturated a market that was once undefined, lifestyle, coffee, beauty and travel influencers have become commonplace, so to speak. So, with this overcrowding of an industry, how do we sift through each of these individuals and differentiate between Influencer A and Influencer B? This is where the term, ‘active user’ comes into play. Active users are engaged and genuinely interested in the people they are following; the micro-influencers. As important as exposure is, hitting your key demographics with what we consider the micro-influencer is a more strategic route for a brand. In this panel we'll chat through what a micro-influencer is, what numbers to look for and how to really see ROI with influencer marketing.

MARKETING YOUR BUSINESS AS A BRAND THROUGH DIGITAL MEDIA

How are brands going from gimmick to strategic on social media? The visual nature of the platforms mean that brands aren’t just able to show off their products—they can also sell a lifestyle. It also stills consumers’ fear of missing out. This is where influencers come in. Brands need to start thinking of campaigns that are a bit outside of the box, to create a lifestyle people want to be a part of. In this panel, we'll chat with influencers about these kinds of campaigns, and how brands can work mutually with them to execute resounding success.
