The Forgotten Medium
HYPER’s Strategy Director, Bruce Gourley will be speaking at NZ Marketing magazine’s Future of Retail Marketing Conference at Auckland’s The Cloud on July 28.
Gourley will give a keynote address on why he believes stores still need to be designed as experiences. His address questions what it will take for bigbox retail to move beyond price-based marketing and become more than efficient DCs? He will discuss how marketing, and its inherent creativity, needs to play a greater role in defining the store as a medium to be experienced.
