There's been a lot of press lately about the renaissance of the print catalog. While catalogs never truly went away, there was a period there that the "death of the catalog" was more than just a whisper. Brands were ditching print in favor of cheaper, "more effective" digital marketing efforts. That's no longer the case. Catalogs have become cool again.
From formerly online-only brands introducing catalogs into their marketing mix (Bonobos, Birchbox) to once-proud catalogers resurrecting their book (J.C. Penney) to traditional catalog brands upping their investment in the channel (J.Crew, Restoration Hardware), the message is clear: catalogs are back in a big way.
The speakers in this session will address this trend and more, including:
- why print still works;
- how print can be integrated into a multichannel marketing mix;
- the future of catalogs in today's digital-focused world; and
- much more!
