Although the big payoff for holiday merchandising programs comes late in the year, success is determined through the planning that takes place by early summer, says Greg Teed, vice president, finance, merchandise planning, operations/logistics, at online retailer Bath & Body Works Direct.

“Strong planning for your holiday program is critical for success, and merchandising and design strategies play a central role,” says Teed. “From world-class gift finders to implementing and optimizing key site functionality, merchandising and design tactics can make the difference between stellar holiday results and a lump of coal at bonus time.”

Teed will join Shannon Glass, vice president, creative and web operations, at Bath & Body Works, and Jeff McCall, senior vice president, strategy services, at GSI Commerce Inc., in a session entitled What you need to do to get ready for holiday shopping 2010. To help retailers better carry out such planning, Teed, Glass and McCall will present a best practices blueprint for jumpstarting a successful 2010 holiday program.
