JCPenney - 6501 Legacy Dr. - Plano, TX 75024

Grottini Retail Environments platinum sponsor of upcoming Shoptalk events for Fall 2011, organized by A.R.E. The Association for Retail Environments. See us in Dallas first, then meet us in San Francisco.

It is almost time for the ever popular and informative Shoptalk series, held by the A.R.E. (Association for Retail Environments), hosted Fall 2011 in Dallas and in San Francisco.
The media sponsor of this edition will be again VMSD magazine and Grottini Retail Environments is proud to be the Platinum Sponsor.
The anticipated event of education and networking will also provide a valuable opportunity for area professionals to preview the very first Design Trends Report by A.R.E.
This report was developed through an extensive review of  A.R.E.'s rich library, collecting all projects and cutting-edge productions. The report will be organized into histories of trends to provide inspiration for creative designers and design challenges.
"Here at  A.R.E. we realized we're sitting on a goldmine of information. We are able to provide this valuable benefit to retailers and designers", says A.R.E. Executive Director Klein Merriman. "Our goal as a non-profit association is to contribute to the growth of retail. With this tool, we intend to be a rich resource for the industry, for everything concerning trends and creative inspiration."
With the debut of the Design Trends Report, the association strengthens its role as a "glue" for designers and visual merchandisers, creating an environment which fosters professional connection and information sharing, and allows A.R.E. an insight into cutting edge thought and creative direction from the great creative minds from around the world.

Shoptalk evenings are held in major retail centers, and are hosted by the influential retail executives in each region, offering each local market significant opportunities for growth, professional development  and networking, and conserving resources of time and travel expenses.
