Recent event: Shopper Seminar

Our Manchester event heard presentations from Blue Chip Marketing, KFC, Decode Marketing and GDR Creative Intelligence.

The event explored how decision science at the point of purchase can increase effectiveness, heard how retail brands are acknowledging and exploiting the trends and platforms that dominate our lives and how one brand has created stand-out in-store in a hush-hush category.
