  • Pop-up shops: more than just a fad? Recorded: Apr 24 2018 30 mins
    Raj Mistry, Group Sales Vertical Director & Joel Gamsu, Senior Client Manager, Dimension Data MEA
    Consumers today are actively looking for an emotional connection with a brand, and, are no longer staying loyal to a single retailer. However, one thing that has not changed is that shopping remains a social activity. To capitalise on this trend, retailers must change their sales strategies to take the brand experience directly to consumers in bite-sized formats or face risking their place in today’s retail world.

    This is where pop-up, or experience stores come into the mix. Global brands such as Nike, Louis Vuitton, and Marie Claire, are actively increasing their investments to support these pop-up shops; and in this webinar, we are going to investigate how even the smallest business can open pop-up stores by focusing on what retailers would need to consider and put in place to ensure stores are successful.
