If you are a retailer wanting to increase your sales, then this is an opportunity not to be missed. Our very own Digital Director, Rob Smith has joined forces with Tangerine PR, uber and Juice Digital to bring together four highly engaging speakers from the worlds of PR, social media, customer loyalty and web design and development. They will share their expertise to help retailers drive sales through the power of engagement. The seminar will take place on Wednesday 19 October 2011 at The Imperial War Museum North in Manchester. Registration will open at 8.30am for a 9.00am start followed by four, 20 minute presentations and a 20 minute question panel. There will be an opportunity to pick the brains of our experts whilst enjoying some networking with other retailers and etailers as well as more refreshments after the session, finishing at 11.30am. No sales pitch, just great content! As if that's not enough, you can park for free,  have a tour of the museum, admire the Quays from the viewing platform and even watch a film "The Big Show".
