NEW YORK — Quoting BrandSmart USA president Michael Perlman from a Monster panel at the CE Line Shows last month: “As the profits have come down on the hard merchandise, the accessories are not only mandatory for us. We’re making a mistake if we don’t sell them.”
There were many new accessory options on display at the event for retailers to ponder over, including those in the now-ubiquitous iLounge area. A few highlights appear below and on p. 40.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
