Kibo and Maui Jim Outline the Omnichannel 2.0 Vision for Brands at NRF 2018

DALLAS – January 11, 2018 – Kibo, the world’s leading cloud-based omnichannel commerce platform, today announced the topic of their Exhibitor Insights Session at National Retail Federation (NRF) Retail’s Big Show 2018, titled Omnichannel 2.0 for Brands, co-presented by Maui Jim, a leader in sunglass innovation.

With all the talk of retailers rapidly deploying omnichannel fulfillment, how do branded manufacturers fit into the mix? Consumers flock to brand websites expecting the same experience as retailer websites, but are often met with disappointment when they are ready to buy. Does it seem impossible for brands to offer buy online with same day in-store pickup at a local retailer? Join this session to hear Kibo and Maui Jim lay out the vision for Omnichannel 2.0 for brands in today’s retail world.

Presenters for this session are Jennifer Sherman, SVP Product & Strategy for Kibo, and Jim Ferolo, VP, Digital and Marketing Technologies and Francesco Stagno d’Alcontres, UX Designer for Maui Jim Sunglasses. The session will be held Monday, Jan. 15 at 9:15am EST, Expo Hall, Big Ideas Room 3, Level 1.

Maui Jim

Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. Seeing a need in the market for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colors of the island to life, we engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus2® lens. Incorporated into seven new sunglass styles, our Classic Collection was introduced. We now offer over 125 styles of sunglasses, 100% of which are polarized and protect from 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
