The Future of Visual Merchandising Online: ROI Strategies, Tools, and Best Practices

Today’s omni-channel retailers need to recruit talented, highly productive and commercially aware Visual Merchandisers (VM) who can make an impact on their bottom line. VM’s have to be super-creative and possess a huge skill set to be able to analyze sales data, predict seasonal trends, and keep abreast of their competitors’ activities across different channels and markets.

Peer 1 Hosting and On Tap will host an interactive interview-style workshop outlining how to stay ahead with transformative visual merchandising applications, and how to keep up within a constantly changing landscape where technology continuously evolves. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn:

  1. How can omni-channel retailers co-ordinate their VM efforts?
  2. Which merchandising strategies can drive conversion rate and increase average order value?
  3. How can big data be leveraged to create smarter merchandising outcomes?
  4. What impact does technology play in VM?

This is a must-attend session for retailers of all sizes eager to learn about tools and techniques that will deliver ROI and make best use of their internal resources. We will examine best practices, emerging technologies, and speculate what the future of visual merchandising online might look like.
