About this event

Ecommerce gets all the attention when it comes to consumer product sales, but consumers still buy a lot of product through physical brick and mortar retail. For those who have never sold through retail, there are questions around relevancy, how to access, and how to position alongside online sales. Join a panel discussion bringing in perspectives from brands and retailers on the place of retail in today’s consumer landscape.
