WASHINGTON The Consumer Healthcare Products Association is gearing up for its 2010 Market Exchange, scheduled Sept. 15 to 16 in New Brunswick, N.J. The CHPA 2010 Market Exchange is a comprehensive networking event between CHPA member manufacturers and other CHPA member vendors or suppliers of goods and services.
Dan O’Connor, president and CEO for RetailNet Group, again will address Market Exchange attendees around the future of retailing on the Thursday morning of the event. Last year, O’Connor addressed the potential impact of a multitude of factors manipulating modern retail — a down economy, an unstable pricing environment, the major shift in demographic focus as baby boomers continue to grey as well as how the recession of 2007 will mold future shopping behaviors.
The second day of the meeting will be shortened, per attendee requests, CHPA stated in its weekly executive newsletter blast. An afternoon session has been exchanged for a longer lunch that should allow additional time for networking before and after the business presentation. The meeting now begins the afternoon of Sept. 15 and ends on the afternoon of Sept. 16.
