Retailing in a Global, Multichannel World, a conference to be held at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City on June 20-21, will explore how retailers and manufacturers are responding to the challenges of a rapidly expanding and evolving marketplace.

Drawing on lessons learned from manufacturing, retailing, and academia, executives and other leaders in the field will address the rise of the global consumer, the in-store shopping experience, and managing the retail experience across multiple channels.

Speakers and panelists will include Jay H. Baker, former president and director, Kohl's Corporation; John Deighton, Harvard Business School and executive director, Marketing Science Institute; Barbara Kahn, The Wharton School and director, Baker Retailing Center; Michael Gould, CEO, Bloomingdale's; Brendan Hoffman, president and CEO, Bon-Ton Stores, Inc.; John Copeland, senior expert in the Marketing and Sales Practice, McKinsey & Company; Dr. Joyce F. Brown, president, FIT; Robin Lewis, CEO and managing editor, The Robin Report; and Michael Dart, principal head of Private Equity and Strategy, Kurt Salmon Associates, among others.

They will discuss such topics as “The New Rules of Retailing,” “The American Shopper Landscape,” “New Business Models in Retailing,” “Multi-Channel Retailing,” “The Global Consumer,” and “The In-Store Experience.”
