Global Shop is an annual event specifically targeting retail designers. This yearly event is being held April 16 – 18 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. There are six different sections to suit a wide variety of in-store solutions, so it’s really like six shows in one! These six sections encompass store fixturing, visual merchandising, store design and operations, digital stores, retail marketing services and at-retail marketplaces. JB Cutting is excited to be exhibiting as part of the Materials Pavilion. This year, the Materials Pavilion is in an excellent location in the lobby near registration, so we should see some fantastic traffic. Hopefully many of you are planning on attending.
The pre-conference portion begins on Monday, April 15th with a bevy of knowledgeable speakers. The actual conference starts Tuesday with sessions ranging from megatrends for design and visual marketing to global retail innovation. Wednesday and Thursday feature more sessions guaranteed to enrich and inform. The expo portion of the show is open from 10am – 5pm Tuesday, April 16th and Wednesday, April 17th. Thursday, April 18th the hours are shortened to 10am – 2pm.
There are also a couple of special events to attend in addition to the conference. On the opening evening, you can attend a reception at the Hard Rock Chicago from 5:30 – 8:00 pm. Following the reception is an opening night party at Enclave from 7:30 – 10:30pm. For a list of all special events, please follow this link: http://www.globalshop.org/show/special-events.shtml
