Suzanne Ellingham, director of sourcing, Source Home & Gift, said: “As we continue to grow our sourcing shows, we know how important it is to provide our audiences with year-round retail insights to help them understand the key economic drivers behind UK retail and consumer sectors and help offer a competitive edge through deeper insights of the retail industry. With world class research, Retail Economics transform information into actionable insights, so this webinar is a must-attend.”
Source Home & Gift has also partnered with retail trends consultancy Insider Trends, launching a Transparency Report exploring what transparency and accountability really looks like in retail. Looking at whether retail can ever truly consider itself sustainable when it’s all about the sale of new things; how even resale, repairs, and rental have an environmental impact and are treated as add-ons for businesses who make money selling new products; and a move away from terms like ‘sustainable’, the Transparency Report outlines how fashion and retail can move forward.
To launch the report, join the Insider Trends Report Webinar on Thursday 23rd November at 11am. The session will provide an overview of the UK retail market, whilst examining consumer trends, the opportunities and trends present across the fashion landscape, and why sustainable and ethical sourcing matter to UK consumers.
