We're leaving cold and blustery Chicago this morning for a week in Las Vegas.
This is a pre-show trip -- we're preparing for Surfaces 2008. On Tuesday, January 29, 2008 we are presenting our program "First Impressions - The Art of Store Layout & Design". This presentation is followed by an off-site retail tour:
"Spend your afternoon with retail gurus Rich Kizer and Georganne Bender as they navigate you through the retail scene in Las Vegas. Begin with invaluable ideas on the art of store layout and design suggestions from the parking lot to the back door and every space in-between. Kizer & Bender will then share their knowledge and enthusiasm by taking you on a walking tour of three shopping attractions: Mandalay Place, New York New York Hotel & Casino, and the Forum Shops at Caesars. Each stop will provide a different, yet creative look at branding, retail design and store layout concepts."

So, while we're in Las Vegas buttoning down the details of our on-site retail store tour, we're sure we'll see plenty of cool things to report. After all, holiday shopping in fabulous Las Vegas can only be, well ... fabulous!
