Ces1Representing all aspects of the technology ecosystem, the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Jan. 7 to 10 in Las Vegas will feature the world’s largest hands-on showcase of emerging innovation. CES is the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies.

The 2014 CES Tech Titans keynote series of addresses will be delivered by Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Audi Chairman Rupert Stadler and Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai.

Bigfour1As the sports licensing world gears up for the Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show in January, it’s clear that there hasn’t been a better time to be involved in licensing products for North America’s top professional sports leagues. Whether it’s Major League Baseball, the National Football League, NASCAR, the National Basketball Association or the National Hockey League, there have never been so many ways for fans to connect with teams and athletes who are their favorites. 

Sage1Retailing is about selection, value and being helped by people who are genuinely happy to see you when you walk in, want you to leave happy and look forward to your return. Discovering something special, delightful, satisfying and memorable at a great price is the consumer need that drives all my businesses. I ran a chain of bagel stores, opened a gym, and in 2007, developed and opened a “storehouse” concept furniture store featuring high-end brands at 40 percent to 60 percent off retail.

Tech1We are in the midst of a digital age that has resulted in astonishing productivity gains for business and extraordinary convenience for consumers, but it also has ushered in an era of unprecedented danger. Gone are the days when a couple of locked doors and a security guard were enough to protect a store.

Any organization that uses e-mail or has a web presence will be attacked. The biggest threat to the retail sector is Russian criminal syndicates that operate with ruthless efficiency in search of credit card numbers and personally identifiable information (PII).

Digital1Although digital screens have been deployed in a variety of retail applications – such as menu boards in restaurants, digital end caps in electronics stores, directory boards in malls and digital mannequins in clothing stores – they have been used as a way to run advertising of products and goods with very little integration into store systems.
