WHAT: “Retail’s Road to Recovery: Status Report on the Global Economy”

Beyond US borders south and abroad, the economy holds a mixed bag of successful growth, continued recovery and yet deeper recession. Hear from a panel of recognized authorities as they examine the current status of the global economic recovery; an outlook for the year to come; and how the retailing industry will be affected. You will learn about key business areas on which to focus that best enable your potential for success amid economic uncertainty.”
