FGILA will present an interactive business panel and discussion on GEN Y: How Retailers Can Capture the Millennial Dollar.
Frustrated marketers from General Mills to General Motors refer to this elusive demographic as “The Unreachables”.
Yet GEN Y represents 71 million 8-to-23-year-olds who spend well over $200 million annually. Invulnerable to print, television, radio or any other of the traditional media, GEN Y is a cultural and marketing enigma. This insightful program on how marketers and retailers can explore and maximize marketing strategies relevant to this critical market segment.
Date: November 18th, 2010
Location: J Restaurant & Lounge – 119 Olive Street – Los Angeles, CA – 90015
Please join FGI-LA as we discuss the ‘Millennials’ and what makes their generation unique. As the fastest-growing segment of workers and least likely to let the recession affect their spending habits, Generation Y is shaking up the way we do business today.
Our expert panel will explain the generational difference and focus on how to capture this consumer’s attention! Enjoy passed Hors D’oeuvres and a no host wine bar while you network with other fashion industry professionals.
