Product staging at the point of sale, using the example of the Trend Islands with a live walkthrough presentation
Saturday, 22.07.2023, 14:45 – 15:15, Sunday, 23.07.2023, 12:30 – 13:00,
Monday, 24.07.2023, 14:45 – 15:15
What are the current trends? How can assortments be staged in an exciting way and customers be encouraged to buy? Olaf Stademann, window and store designer and expert for visual merchandising, provides answers. Under the mottos "Social Cocooning" and "Rather Enchanting", he curated the Trend Islands adjacent to the Forum and presents them live every day. "This season, the Trend Islands reflect the needs for the cold, dark season and for the upcoming festive season: on the one hand, it's all about the rediscovered new cosiness, on the other hand, there is a lot of glitter, glamour and strong colour contrasts to discover. My recommendation: a mix of different product groups. This evokes emotions and creates new buying impulses", reveals Olaf Stademann.
