Experience an exclusive collection of the
world’s finest visual merchandising and
store design showrooms.
Whether you do business in New York year ‘round or venture there only for an occasional dollop of inspiration, there is no question that the first week of December is the best time for retail store planners and designers to converge in the Big Apple.
We call it a Collective because it brings together everything special about the sights and sounds of New York and retail design—the city’s famous holiday windows, flagship retail decked out for the season of giving, permanent and temporary showrooms at 7 W and throughout the city, conference sessions featuring visual inspiration from New York and around the globe, and one of the best networking opportunities of the year, the PAVE Gala. And let’s not forget the endless showroom parties and special events that keep you in touch with your retail peers and the latest in materials and visual merchandising.
Your new stores and remodels are done for the year. Now it’s time to enjoy a visual buffet as you refresh and revamp for the year ahead. Who knows, you might even stumble across that special gift for that special someone during one of your retail excursions in the city that never sleeps.
We’ll provide showroom directions and ideas on can’t miss windows and retail and we’ll wrap it up in one giant package of retail design inspiration for you.
It’s a busy time of year in New York for sure, and it’s not too early to make your hotel reservations. A.R.E. has a block available at The New Yorker Hotel.
