Shopper360 bridges the skills gap in shopper marketing

1.Shopper marketing thumbnail

(  In its bid nurture the new generation of talents in Shopper Marketing, shopper360 (previously known as Pos Ad Group) hosted the students of IACT for its Retail Lab training.

According to shopper360’s group managing director, Sue Ann Chew, today’s advertising courses are lacking in education on retail advertising and shopper marketing.

“There is a big and growing demand for talents in the retail segment and very few are being prepared and trained for this industry.” shared Sue Ann.

Taking it upon themselves to nurture tomorrow’s shopper marketing superstars, shopper360 launched their Retail Lab in 2015, to showcase the different media ideas and formats available within hypermarkets, supermarkets, pharmacies and convenience stores to students.

Holding a class on retail advertising, graphic design students of IACT were given both a theoretical and practical lesson with a knowledge sharing on the industry with Sue Ann and a discussion on how shopper360 goes about executing and planning a campaign for their clients.

In simulating a real working environment for the students, those attending were given a real life job brief where they were asked to conduct market research, given a job brief and present a proposal for a reputable FMCG client to Sue Ann and her team.

The Retail Lab is a joint initiative by shopper360 and IACT College to produce industry-ready graduates.
