INSPIRED. magazine showcases trends

“64% of consumers now feel they can make a difference in the world with their purchases” is one of the insights in the new issue of INSPIRED. magazine,  published by the International Housewares Association (IHA) and available to read online HERE.   

‘Go local’ is one of the visual merchandising tips from VM expert Anne Kong, who is one of the expert jurors for gia (Global Innovation Awards) programme. Retailers can differentiate their displays by showcasing products made by local artisans or artefacts from local museums or artwork from local schools. ‘Green walls’ are among Anne’s tips ‘to relax the eye’ of shoppers.
