Visual merchandising is the practice in the retail industry of developing floor plans and three-dimensional displays in order to maximize sales. Both goods and services can be displayed to highlight their features and benefits.
After attending the Introduction to Visual Merchandising Workshop earlier on this year, this follow up workshop will be an opportunity to recap on the key VM principles and to discuss how you have used the skills that you have learnt to assist your business.
We will also be exploring how Visual Merchandising can be used to help enhance your brand and target more customers.
Please bring along your own merchandise and any prop items you would like to work with on the day. Sarah will also be offering individual feedback and support, so please bring along any photos of your displays or merchandising you have created since attending the first workshop.
NB. To take part in this workshop participants must be residents or run a business in the London Boroughs of Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets
