"It's taken months to get the appointment with a key retail partner who can make your future a very happy one,” says John Parham, President, Director of Branding for Parham Santana, The Brand Extension Agency. “So what and how are you going to present, and what matters most to the retail 'gatekeeper' who makes the decision to carry your brand online or on-shelf?”
Discover the answer in a roundtable discussion hosted by LIMA at the Licensing Expo 2017 in Las Vegas. Join John, who will moderate, “How to Win at Retail: The 5 Proven Rules.”
Learn how to balance the creative and business sides of selling, what and how much to present, and in what order. Drawing from first-hand experience working with the world's largest retailers and leading brand owners, John will distill decades of what works, and what doesn't, into five proven rules for retail success.
LIMA's Roundtable series features tables of 20 people meeting for 30 minutes each with a licensing expert to discuss a topic of interest, then switching to a new table/topic. Each session provides time for attendees to participate in three discussions. Use this opportunity to hear from John and other licensing experts.
