Panel Discussion: How to stay attractive for customers – vitalization of traditional brands

The session will examine how Saks Fifth Avenue pairs its distinct shopping heritage with a new contemporary design philosophy, will tap into the elegant and creative new grocery paradigm that Whole Foods has created, and explore the growing international footprint that Sephora is unleashing on a global scale – and the challenges that come with each.
