NRF Foundation, the research and education arm of the National Retail Federation, is pleased to invite you to the learn more about findings of the eighth annual "state of the retail industry" study, Retail Horizons: Benchmarks for 2009, Forecasts for 2010, sponsored by KPMG.
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 2009 and is based on responses in nine functional areas through online surveys from more than 310 retail executives in 138 companies.
A year ago, the retail industry was facing its greatest global financial crisis in decades and, while challenges continued in 2009, 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 as they enter a new decade.
The speakers will include:
Katherine Mance, NRF Foundation, Vice President
Mark Larson, KPMG LLP, U.S. and Global Head of Retail
Kabir Merchant, KPMG LLP, Director, Business Due Diligence
