Experience Design: More Than Retail
Join Jerry Alexander, Principal, Co-Managing Director and Gensler Global Brand Leader for an engaging discussion on experience design and its impact on the retail industry and beyond. In the past several years, there has been a push to incorporate retail principles across various industries to create meaningful and emotional connections. As a result, many spaces now offer a mix of uses, immersing and engaging occupants to develop brand loyalty. In this session, Jerry will address the intersection of retail and brand experience design and how implementing successful strategies can offer users a connected and curated environment.
