7 W to Host Retail Design Collective

       

       

NEW YORK—The 7 W New York showroom building will serve as the official headquarters for the Retail Design Collective of the Association of Retail Environments.

Formerly known as the NADI Show, the event is scheduled for Dec. 8-10. It will encompass 16 visual merchandising suites in 7 W, which will complement the collective’s participating companies in and around Manhattan. The companies in the collective provide visual and design resources to retailers, and the event provides a chance display these resources in showroom environments at 7 W.

The displays will have products ranging from mannequins to seasonal decor, store fixtures, flooring, materials and others. Noting that some of the participants have become permanent tenants, Chris Collins, vice president and general manager of 7 W, said the industry “fits so well with our position in the marketplace.”
