“As we continue to grow our sourcing shows, we know how important it is to provide our audiences with year-round retail insights to help them understand the key economic drivers behind UK retail and consumer sectors and help offer a competitive edge through deeper insights of the retail industry,” comments Suzanne Ellingham, director of Sourcing, Source Home & Gift. “With world class research, Retail Economics transform information into actionable insights, so this webinar is a must-attend.”
Source Home & Gift has also partnered with retail trends consultancy Insider Trends, launching a Transparency Report exploring what transparency and accountability really looks like in retail. It will be looking at whether retail can ever truly consider itself sustainable when it’s all about the sale of new things; how even resale, repairs, and rental have an environmental impact and are treated as add-ons for businesses who make money selling new products; and a move away from terms such as ‘sustainable’, with the report outlining how retail and fashion can move forward.
To launch the report, there will be an Insider Trends Report webinar on Thursday 23 November at 11am. The session will provide an overview of the UK retail market, while examining consumer trends, the opportunities and trends present across the fashion landscape, and why sustainable and ethical sourcing matter to UK consumers.
