Give People What They Want!

Jim Krueger, CEO of the International Antimicrobial Council

Sub-title: Research shows which performance features Americans desire in apparel. You might think you’re giving it to them, but are you really sure?

Apparel brands and retailers are constantly searching for new ways to differentiate their products and, often, that means adding various performance features. One of the most popular trends today is adding “freshness” features to apparel and home textiles. Research shows that 60% of consumers are interested in purchasing products that will remain fresh all day. Or, for those who already own ‘all-day fresh’ products, interest in re-purchasing items with this feature is 90%. Of course, antimicrobials help brands and retailers make and keep their all-day fresh promise.

Join Mr. Jim Krueger, CEO of the International Antimicrobial Council, to learn more about these freshness trends. Jim will share research results and, importantly, help the audience understand how brands and retailers can keep their promise to consumers once product developers and marketers decide to include antimicrobials in their lines. Don’t get in trouble by making promises you cannot keep when it comes to the freshness trend.
