Retailers looking for a more profitable 4th quarter can mark October on their calendar as the first ever Forum of Retail Jewelry Science launches in Dallas, Texas from October 17th to 19th.
The important, new event is scheduled for 3 days and will provide both retailers and vendors with first hand proven principles in inventory control, merchandising, planning and staff management.
The event is being organized by The Edge Retail Academy and will include a number of high profile presenters including David Brown, Sally Furrer, Lynn Baldwin, Janice Mack Talcott, Darci Aselage and Dick Abbott. Topics will include business growth strategies, discovering the key performance measures for any successful store, how to recruit and train staff that will add to your business and the profit making principles to managing and merchandising your inventory effectively.
Organizer David Brown sees the event as one that will become an annual fixture for any progressive jewelry retailer. “The level of knowledge and information that will be provided is very exciting, and is timely given the importance of 4th quarter sales. With the majority of stores earning almost all their annual profit at this time of year it’s crucial not to leave your planning to chance. We are fortunate to be able to pull together the caliber of speakers that are available for an event such as this, and the information shared will be an investment that will pay off, not only during the last months of the year, but on an ongoing basis moving forward.”
One of the more exciting dynamics of the event is the opportunity for retailers and vendors to be involved together. Of particular benefit will be the tracks covering this relationship, and how retailers and vendors can work together for the greater good.
“There hasn’t been an event of this nature encouraging the working together of retailers and vendors before – its potential to create some fantastic opportunities for both parties to achieve greater sales is unlimited, and we think this could be the greatest takeaway from the event,” said Brown.
