Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
Design intelligence from retail’s smartest brands will be in attendance for VMSD magazine’s 2014 International Retail Design Conference, slated for September 3-5 in Miami, Florida.
“Miami has become an incredible center for all types of artists and designers—arguably the most cutting-edge retail design destination in the Americas, if not the world. I can’t think of a better setting to inspire the design professionals in our industry to do their greatest work.” - Steve Duccilli, VMSD Magazine
The Fontainebleau Miami Beach, located on Collins Avenue in close proximity to Bal Harbour Shops, Lincoln Road Mall and the Miami Design District, is the perfect venue for an immersive IRDC experience. Conceived by legendary architect Morris Lapidus, the Fontainebleau opened in 1954 and quickly became a magnet for performers such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and the Beatles as well as presidents, fashion photographers and film crews. A $1 billion renovation and expansion in 2008 infused the property with modern luxury, technology and art, while staying true to its original glamour and style.
Attendees will hear the stories behind trailblazing concepts, see what’s resonating with shoppers in-store, identify trends in the making, and meet the design visionaries behind some of retail’s most respected brands.
IRDC conference registration is now underway. A super early-bird discount is available through May 30, 2014.
