Pop Ups: The Talk in the Galleria
Monday, April 16, 2018 12:00 AM
NEW YORK—Jobson editors rose to the occasion and for the second year in a row participated in a series of Pop Up talks that took place in the Galleria Lounge. Vision Monday’s own Jamie Wilson and Stephanie Sengwe were joined by Ruth Domber of 10/10 Optics and Karen Freidus of Center Stage Optique to dish about “Independents A to Z: A Guide to Standing out on Main Street.” Inspired by the ever-changing optical retail landscape, the intimate yet dynamic panel discussion focused on the do’s, don’ts and business tactics of running an independent retail location as well as forging a distinct identity and experience on Main Street.
VM’s sister pub, 20/20 Magazine featured James Spina for an interactive Pop-Up Talk titled, “Seeing Eye to Eye.” Spina was joined by his editorial team consisting of Christine Yeh, Victoria Garcia and Jillian Urcelay. They addressed why the perfection of an Opti-Partnership between an eyewear retailer and an eyewear vendor is the first step when it comes to fitting a Frame. Both talks were well-attended and it looks like after two years, Pop Up talks have gained some serious legs.
