Retail Trends in Canada and Campaign Optimization for the Canadian Consumer
Consultant, J.C. Williams Group
In 2011, Zappos exited Canada quietly; fast forward two years and Target is opening its doors in Canada in 2013 with quite the bang as it launches a multi-billion-dollar strategy that will see it open 165 new stores starting this March! What is it about the Canadian marketplace and Canadian consumers that makes business opportunities so appealing and yet why are some retailers unsuccessful? What do businesses fail to understand about the average Canadian shopper and this Northern landscape? In this session you will gain a broader understanding of the Canadian retail market and its consumers.
We’ll also dive into several themes which are essential to acknowledge in order to target your marketing and optimize your campaigns for the Canadian consumer.
