Walgreens to Headline Multicultural Retail Summit
Multicultural marketing experts from Deerfield, Ill.-based drug store chain Walgreens, one of the world’s largest retailers, will headline a stellar lineup of speakers at this year’s Multicultural Retail 360 Summit, Sept. 26, in Rosemont, Ill.
Martha Garnica, multicultural marketing manager, and Monica Merel, multicultural marketer for the more than 8,000-store pharmacy chain, will discuss how Walgreens is adapting to the incredible growth of the U.S. Hispanic population. They show how they elevated their brand through an equity campaign to multicultural consumers.
In addition to Walgreens, marketing experts from Nielsen, Albertsons and several noted consultancies and research firms will present trends, case studies and strategies for meeting the needs of Hispanics, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, bi-culturals, Millennials, Gen Zers and other growing demographic groups that are changing the U.S. consumer market.
For the first time, Multicultural Retail 360 is being conducted in conjunction with the Path to Purchase Expo (P2PX), also taking place in Rosemont, from Sept. 26-28. P2PX is the world’s largest gathering of brand manufacturers, retailers, agency professionals and solution providers for marketing to shoppers.
