Angela Pinkstaff, director of business development at HRG, will lead a Smart! Talk presentation, “Improve Your Environmental Impact with Sustainable Fixture Practices,” on the show floor at Shop! MarketPlace, Wednesday, April 26, at 10 a.m. The session will focus on streamlining the fixture reset process by employing processes to facilitate the reuse of componentry to decrease waste, reduce labor hours and increase profitability. Shop! MarketPlace is at the Palmer Events Center on April 25-27 in Austin, Texas.
The interactive presentation will show how technology can help attendees overcome any internal resistance to change and illuminate where improvements can be made, reimagining more cost-effective and socially responsible resets. In addition, attendees will learn how to assess current reset processes and identify improvement areas, estimate savings in time, labor and materials and the significance of the potential improved environmental impact.
Pinkstaff stated, “Social responsibility is not a fad. Brands, retailers, and suppliers alike are looking for ways to implement processes and procedures that have positive, measurable impacts. Improvements in sustainability related to fixture processes can offer constructive environmental impacts, as well as save time, labor and material costs.”
