Exhibition of Cutting Edge Retail Environment Components and Conference Runs until January 31st, at the NWBLK, San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO - Jan. 24, 2014 - PRLog -- Roaring into its second week, the  ‘ROAD’ Retail Design Show reveals the future of retail to forward- thinking brands who want to harness the trends and learn about the latest retail design elements.   ROAD runs until January 31st, 9am to 9pm every day (excluding weekend) at the NWBLK San Francisco, located at:  1999 Bryant Street, San Francisco, California 94110.

‘ROAD’ creator, and ALU founder and CEO Abramo Manfrotto, commented: “Cognoscenti understand that it’s not just about product anymore but getting the customers engaged with the physical store! This includes fixtures, flooring, lighting, sound, visuals, scents and an overall engaging atmosphere to allow retailers to be successful.”

“The world is increasingly connected and it is vital for brands to stay on top of consumer’s attitudes and upcoming lifestyles. Trends are co-created by all of us, and we all somehow identify what is happening on the collective sphere, whether we are conscious of it or not. Actionable knowledge of these trends results in bottom line benefits to retailers.  Trend Union has over 25 years of accuracy in sorting out, decoding and crystallizing cultural messages, and we enjoy sharing this information with ‘ROAD’ attendees!”  Emmanuelle Linard, TREND UNION/EDELKOORT INC.

ROAD features an array of workshops, speeches, demonstrations by international trendsetters, retail experts, and creative influencers. The schedule offers a comprehensive overview on how the retail and visual merchandising worlds can use external components to stimulate consumer response.

Partners of ROAD include: A.C. Lighting, ABC Mannequins, Activaire, Allan Nathan, Coloredge and The NWBLK (
