The University of Arizona's Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing has announced its 2014 Global Retailing Conference lineup of presenters, which includes UA alumnus Lundgren, CEO of Macy's, and Bobbi Brown, founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.

With a theme of "Ignite the Customer Experience," the conference presentations will focus on how retailers engage customers in their brands and enhance the shopping experience through innovation, technology and techniques for meeting evolving consumer preferences.

The conference will be held April 10-11 at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, 7000 N. Resort Drive, in Tucson. The annual event serves as a forum and think tank for emerging ideas in a setting that fuses business and academia.

"The University of Arizona has become one of the top schools to recruit emerging management talent in the field of retail," said Martha Van Gelder, director of the Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing. "Our ability to attract the industry's leading innovators to Tucson speaks volumes to our corporate partnerships and the UA's collective expertise in retail, consumer sciences and data analytics."
