Nordic Demo attendees will also enjoy hosted breakfasts, lunches and several educational seminars presenting great ideas and takeaways that retailers can implement back at their shops. The first seminar will be offered on Monday, February 2 at 8:30AM, entitled The State of the Nordic Market and presented by SIA’s Director of Research Kelly Davis.
