Global retail solutions experts to share key consumer insights at New York City event

Norwalk, CT—May 14, 2014—TMC announced today that DCI-Artform retail strategist Robin Shea will deliver a keynote at Wearable Tech Conference & Expo, held July 23-24, 2014, at the Javits Convention Center in New York City, New York. The event will provide attendees with case studies, demos and unique sessions that discover the current and future state of the billion dollar wearable tech market. DCI-Artform Senior Marketing Strategist Robin Shea will provide a keynote titled “Bringing Wearables to Retail: New Rules for a New Category,” on Wednesday, July 23, at 11:45 a.m. Shea will discuss/present a unique exploration into how to bring wearables to shoppers and share best practices, recommendations and a glimpse at the future of this category.

“Hardware and software tends to be the focus of discussions in the wearable category, but sometimes the consumer is forgotten,” said Shea. “Success centers on whether shoppers will buy, so in my keynote, I’ll talk about the unique needs of shoppers in this category and how to serve those needs in order to actually sell these products.”
