May 14 Webinar to Examine the Future of Retail

May 12, 2020 | The NPD Group will discuss how to navigate the economic challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has created at retail in a Toy Association webinar this Thursday.

Taking place May 14 at 2 p.m. (Eastern), the one-hour session, “What’s Next for Retail,” will provide information and guidance to help toy professionals understand retail timing, changes, and likely strategies needed now, and in the short term, to come out ahead.

Presenters include The NPD Group’s Don Unser, group president of retail; Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst of retail; and Juli Lennett, vice president and industry advisor of U.S. toys. The Toy Association’s Anne McConnell, senior director of market research & data strategy, will moderate.

Due to extremely high demand, the live session is currently at capacity, but interested parties can still register to receive the recording, which will be made available on Friday, May 15.

Registration is free for members and $49 for non-members. The session is open to all, but specifically recommended for CEOs, CFOs, and heads of marketing, sales, and strategic planning. Questions may be directed to Bernadette Boyle.
