Fall Shoptalks mark debut of A.R.E. Design Trends Report
The report is being developed through a comprehensive review of A.R.E.’s extensive library of cutting-edge new retail projects and displays. The thoroughly researched and well-presented report will be organized into trend stories to provide attendees with inspiration for their upcoming design challenges.
“At A.R.E., we have realized we are sitting on a treasure trove of information that can benefit retailers and designers,” said Executive Director Klein Merriman. “The new report should prove to be excellent resource for researching design trends and creative inspiration.”
With the debut of the new Design Trends Report, A.R.E. enhances its role as the best way for retail designers and visual merchandisers to stay connected and see what great creative minds are up to around the world.
