The National Retail Federation Foundation (NRFF) and KPMG have published the ninth annual "state of the retail industry" study, Retail Horizons: Benchmarks for 2010, Forecasts for 2011. Retail Horizons offers a detailed overview of the current state of the industry and retailers’ plans for the year ahead. The full report provides deep insights into tactical decisions and strategies retail companies will implement as the industry continues to recover, and how they will try to maintain customer focus while placing a greater emphasis on the bottom line. Research for this year’s report was conducted in the fall of 2010 and is based on responses in nine functional areas through online surveys from more than 310 retail executives in 135 companies.
Two years ago, the retail industry was facing its greatest global financial crisis in decades and, while challenges continued in 2010, lessons were learned. Please join us for our Webcast as we discuss the survey results and lessons learned that will help retailers move quickly and thoughtfully to position themselves for success.
The speakers will include: • Katherine Mance, NRF Foundation, Executive Director • Dan Butler, NRF, Vice President, Retail Operations • Mark Larson, KPMG LLP, Global Head of Retail • Ali Wampler, KPMG LLP, Retail Business Effectiveness Professional
