Southwest + Pacific - December 2023 Newsletter

Greetings Retail Design Institute Southwest + Pacific Chapter Members!

Thank you to everyone who came to November's bid Retail Design Institute Southwest + Pacific Chapter Holiday event at Eleventy in Beverly Hills! The Rodeo Drive Holiday Celebration put everyone in the spirit of good cheer. We started with a reception hosted at the exquisite Italian apparel brand Eleventy and sponsored by our friends at Silvestri

The event continued outside on Rodeo Drive for a best-in-class luxury retail, entertainment, and pop-up holiday activations culminating in an exciting fireworks display grand finale! 

After the fireworks we attended the after-party hosted by Set + Stage Creative where we wined and dined and talked amongst friends. It was a night befitting of Beverly Hills and the best colleagues in the business. We can't wait to do it again next year!

Did you know the Southwest + Pacific Chapter includes Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Hawaii? It's true! IF you know any innovative store experiences, retail companies or consultants in any of these areas please let us know! We'd love to spotlight them in this series.
