Gamma3 Council to hold forum on the future of retail, October 14th – 15th 2021 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

The Gamma3 Council is inviting members of the retail industry to explore the trends, markets, and practices that will guide the next decade of fashion at its 14th annual forum.

This year, the forum will take place in the Dominican Republic, one of the best performing markets in Latin America, where booming sales to local customers have been able to offset the dramatic COVID-related stop to tourism

The forum will present two days of talks, discussions, and conferences by key industry leaders offering powerful takeaways in the future of the retail business.

Topics on the agenda include: Regional political and economic trends that will affect the retail industry in LATAM and the U.S.; consumer macro trends shaping the global fashion industry and their influence on consumer habits; increasing digitalization and technological advancements applied to retail; best practices for enhancing store performance through training and continuing education; high-end retail opportunities in the region; what lies ahead in travel retail; and many more essential themes.

     Among the speakers and panelists confirmed are John Price, American Market Intelligence; John Hooks, Luxury Industry expert and former Deputy Chairman at Giorgio Armani; Ron Thurston, former VP at Intermix and Retail Pride author; Ginger Puglia, principal at Ginger Finds: Talent lab; and Massimo Volpe, Co-Founder at Retail Hub.

     Since 2006, the Gamma3 Council has worked with global brands, retailers, and retail developers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Hugo Boss, Cartier, Neiman Marcus, Bal Harbour, Grupo Roble and Blue Mall to analyze retail trends and business opportunities in the high-end segment of the Americas.

     The industry think tank works with premium research companies to provide its members with the most current market trends and accurate projections.

     The on-going groundwork culminates in their annual Forum where members from around the world can come together to explore their findings alongside their peers as well as top markers in the field.
