NEW ‘IGC RETAIL LAB’ INTERACTIVE DESIGN FORUM WITH JUDY SHARPTON ON THE SHOW FLOOR
IGC Show organizers reveal they are rolling out the IGC Retail Lab, a new 3,500-square-foot retail symposium and interactive design forum, right on the trade show floor this August 13-15 at Lakeside | McCormick, in collaboration with Garden Center Makeover Expert Judy Sharpton. In this North American first, designed to lead the independent garden center industry into 2020 and decades beyond, IGC Show attendees will discover how to incorporate modern modular gathering spaces in their stores that sell to consumer demand in four key trend areas. The IGC Retail Lab’s TED-Talk-style discussions and merchandising demonstrations are FREE and open to all attendees daily on the trade show floor. Using both models based on existing gathering spaces at independent garden centers and interactive planning consultations, Sharpton will demonstrate the products that support each of the trend focuses, and how to merchandise them for maximum profitability inside store gathering spaces and on the sales floor. “The purpose is not to create just fun places where somebody can come and have a wedding,” Sharpton says, “but to create a way to actually sell product in these gathering spaces by communicating the trends.” Get all the details on this exciting new opportunity for independent garden centers here.

DR. BRIDGET BEHE’S LATEST CONSUMER RESEARCH: THE WAY CUSTOMERS SEE YOUR STORE
Horticultural marketing researcher Dr. Bridget Behe of Michigan State University - in the only keynote she’ll present to our industry this year - is ready to reveal the findings of her latest scientific studies that use state-of-the-art eye-tracking software to map the precise movement of customers’ eyes as they shop independent garden centers. From her Tuesday morning keynote, one of three for free at this summer’s IGC Show, you’ll take back new display and store layout ideas that you can put in place immediately at your garden center to improve the shopping experience for your customers - and register more sales. “What goes unseen goes unsold,” Dr. Behe explains. “Our research shows that you have about five seconds to make a good impression to encourage your customers to buy.” Get the details on all three free IGC Show keynotes here. As the exciting details of this summer’s must-attend event continue to unfold, IGC Show officials revealed the big-name ticket for IGC Show 2019’s free party and concert on Wednesday - San Francisco rock legends STARSHIP, featuring Mickey Thomas, will perform their timeless anthems, “We Built This City,” “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now,” “Sara,” “Fooled Around and Fell In Love” and more!
