On 10 July, the doors seamlessly opened to what promises to continue to be the most important decor, furniture and retail event on the African continent.

In my opinion this is probably an optimistic figure many hope to achieve when it comes to evaluating the efficacy of their standard point-of-sale material. You might be ticking a box by having a bulky pull up banner on display next to their product, but does it make the product or the campaign memorable?

The omnichannel future of retail

Imagine for a moment what an electronics and appliance retailer might look like in the not-too-distant future...
