DDI Magazine offers solutions to help retailers and designers create dynamic, effective store environments. The magazine focuses on store design, visual merchandising, architecture, marketing and branding, with a readership of qualified high-level, in-house retail and contract design professionals. Store planners, visual merchandisers, store designers, independent architects, contract designers and consumer products manufacturers working with high-volume retail chains depend on coverage in DDI for cutting-edge trends, strategies and product applications for store design.

DDI covers all facets and categories of retail, from luxury and specialty stores to discount and dollar stores. Product category coverage ranges from flooring, lighting, surfacing and fixturing to signage and graphics, visual props and décor, mannequins and in-store technology. We pride ourselves on providing quality content to the retail design industry in a visually stimulating package.

In addition to a monthly print magazine, DDI also offers various other touchpoints to its readers, including a host of digital products and face-to-face events. The DDI Web site (www.ddionline.com) offers retail news headlines updated daily, as well as additional project case studies and product offerings not offered in the magazine. DDI’s site also offers a searchable product company database through an online Buyers’ Guide (www.ddionline.com/buyersguide), as well as a retail design blog dubbed RetailDesignDiva.com. In addition, DDI offers a page-by-page digital edition of its monthly print magazine, which is available via subscription at www.ddionline.com/digital.

DDI is also the presenter of GlobalShop, the largest annual U.S. tradeshow for the store design, visual merchandising and in-store marketing industries. GlobalShop features an exhibit hall with more than 700 suppliers, in addition to a full conference program that hosts some of the industry’s top presenters. In the fall, the magazine also hosts the DDI Forum, an annual gathering of top design executives from retail and contract firms to discuss pressing concerns and topics as related to the retail design industry.

Through its print, digital and face-to-face offerings, DDI aims to offer solutions to its retail design audience in a multitude of formats. DDI. Totally Connected.
