The record industry isn't all doom and gloom. When independent retail saw the downturn in sales, what did they do? Market themselves! This panel explores the brief history of Record Store Day and how independent retailers are working with labels to create events to engage consumers. The panel will discuss the growth of the event, and highlight a number of stores' marketing strategies to draw the consumer in - and retain them. The panel will show examples of exclusive product, live in-store events and recordings and how they generated a real 'experience' for the fan. The panel will also review and critique its latest ongoing promotions to drive sales year round.
