Moda Lingerie & Swimwear will host live debates for the first time this season.
Industry experts will discuss relevant and pressing topics, such as growth markets in the sector, how to overcome consumer concerns about fit with online retail and how to reintroduce expert human advice to the shop floor.
Sitting on the panel for the Big Live Lingerie Debate are Figleaves brand and product director Sue Herrick, Verdict Retail senior retail analyst Honor Westnedge, Underlines magazine editor Pamela Scott and Esther Fieldgrass of independent lingerie boutique Petits Bisous.
The debate will commence on Monday Moda’s dedicated Lingerie & Swimwear Retail Theatre.
Also featuring in the theatre, Global Fashion Management director Thierry Bayle will host retail surgeries which will focus on managing stock and cash flow and how to convert footfall into sales.
Visual merchandising is also a hot topic this season, with Eve Reid of Metamorphosis preparing to reveal her 10 steps to visual retail success.
Meanwhile, Tracy Turner-Ward is set to deliver her perfect fit seminar series, and chairman of Retail Performance Specialist Dennis Reid reveals the best practice from across the lingerie and swimwear sector and how it can be applied to help businesses increase their sales.
Seminars will also take place alongside a series of brand presentations from industry heavyweights including Wacoal, Elomi and Chantelle.
Moda is a three-day event which will be held from Sunday at NEC Birmingham.
