On November 23, Retail Council of Canada will host an exciting online session with Diane J. Brisebois, President & CEO of RCC, and Iain Nairn, President & CEO of Hudson’s Bay. Iain will discuss in detail how Hudson’s Bay is reinventing itself as a digital institution.

Hudson’s Bay is not only innovating as an e-commerce retailer, but in new digital spaces such as the Nintendo game Animal Crossing: New Horizons where players can dress their avatars in classic HBC prints. This is just one example of how this iconic company is integrating itself into Canadian consumers’ lives in creative and unexpected ways.

Iain will also discuss the future of fashion and beauty and the new role of the department store in today’s retail environment.
