Recrylic® Serves as IRDC Diamond Sponsor -- Schedule Your Tour

Recrylic is excited to serve as a Diamond sponsor of this year’s International Retail Design Conference (IRDC) October 25-26 in Minneapolis.  As one of the event’s lead sponsors, Recrylic will help welcome attendees to its home city while engaging in the latest discussions around retail innovation.

Presented annually by Visual Merchandising Store Design (VMSD) magazine, IRDC is a one-of-a-kind event centered on best practices, emerging opportunities and fresh strategies for engaging shoppers, maximizing resources and rethinking the retail experience.

Recognized as a premier retail design destination, IRDC draws together creative minds from well-known retailers, brands and their architect / design consultants.  With a focus on cutting-edge concepts, technologies and sustainable solutions, the conference provides a platform for professionals to explore, learn and collaborate.

“By sponsoring IRDC, Recrylic demonstrates its dedication to shaping the future of retail design,” said Recrylic President Bill McNeely, Jr.  “The event's theme, ‘Designing Tomorrow's Retail,’ aligns perfectly with Recrylic's vision of fostering innovation and sustainability within the industry.”

Recrylic is the world’s only line of certified recycled acrylic sheets – widely used in a variety of retail, design and architectural applications.  Recrylic looks, performs and costs the same as virgin acrylic, but slashes CO2 emissions by 90%.  As a company, Recrylic provides both bulk sheets as well as expert fabrication for finished projects and components.

By serving as an IRDC Diamond sponsor, Recrylic will have a chance to introduce its sustainable retail design story in a number of ways:

  • On Thursday, October 26, Recrylic will present a case study with regional grocery leader, Lunds & Byerlys, sharing how the retailer helped create head-turning displays while also reducing CO2 emissions.
  • Recrylic will be prominently featured at the Iron Merchant challenge – in which teams compete in real time to create innovative displays.
  • Recrylic will also introduce and facilitate a variety of general sessions, breakouts and roundtable discussions at the event.

In addition to meeting with Recrylic at IRDC, select retailers and merchandisers are invited to visit Recrylic’s showroom gallery as part of their Minneapolis travels.  The gallery is a 15,000-square-foot showroom containing hundreds of innovative ideas, aimed at sparking brainstorming and discussion.  To learn more and schedule a tour, visit www.Recrylic.com/showroom.  For a preview video of the showroom, click here.
