Three of Atlanta Market’s Shop the Show influencers are sharing insights live from their homes in exclusive webinar content presented as part of the “Shop the Show: Alumni at Home Edition” programming.
Retailer and lifestyle influencer Monika Hibbs, stylist, author and entertaining expert Annette Joseph and TV host, chef and author Kelsey Nixon will join Victoria de la Camara, Rue Magazine market editor for “From the Lifestyle Experts: How Consumer Needs Have Evolved & How to Stay Ahead” presented on July 23 at 1 p.m. EDT.
“The COVID-19 crisis has disrupted our lives and our work, changed our daily routines, forced us to adopt new habits, and compelled us to reframe the ways in which we engage in our businesses,” said Dorothy Belshaw, International Market Centers chief marketing and digital officer. “Through this webinar, our ‘Shop the Show influencers will share how they are approaching this time and provide valuable insight to retailers and designers as they plan for recovery.”
According to IMC, Hibbs, Joseph, Nixon and de la Camara will discuss industry shifts due to the pandemic, share their tips for thriving in this new normal, and showcase some of their favorite new finds from the upcoming Atlanta Market. The conversation will touch on topics such as finding well-being at home, reviving retail, how to make the most out of kitchens, designing spaces for work and creating a lifestyle at home that maximizes self-expression and functionality. Free registration for the webinar is available at AmericasMart.com/events.
