Unique, readily available products, follow through, to-the-trade discounts, understanding the other party’s business works, making the project your first priority, these are the basic building blocks of strong retailer – designer relationships. While trust is a major component to both sides of this business relationship, you won’t want to miss hearing the rest of the story.
Join us at Fall Market for Retailer and Designer – Relationship 101 to gain a deeper understanding of these important partnerships – with perspectives from both sides. An entertaining panel of retail and design pros will discuss the real life challenges of learning to work together – what they love, what they hate, what it takes to build great professional relationships, and how to build business on both sides.
In an informal question and answer session, audience moderator, Natalie Reddell, interior designer, style influencer, and founder of Commander In Chic, and panel moderator, Susan Dickenson, Editor-in-Chief of Home Accents Today, will pose their questions – and yours – to our panelists.
Answering your questions will be Courtney Garrigan and Teddie Garrigan, retailers and founders of Coco & Dash and Ciao, Coco!, Claire Bell, retailer/interior designer/product designer for Claire Bell Home, and Jamie Merida, retailer/interior designer/product designer for Bountiful.
