The Home Depot Managers Meeting in Vegas

As you may know, Martha Stewart Living has a growing line of wonderful products for the home and garden at The Home Depot.  For example, we offer beautiful kitchens, top-quality paint, carpeting, closet systems, and wonderful patio furniture.  And, I’m happy to report, that more great merchandise will be introduced next season, which brings me to the purpose of this blog.

Once a year, The Home Depot hosts a Managers Meeting, with more than 3,000 employees and vendors in attendance.  This event is the actual unveiling of all the new products, which will be placed in stores next season.  This year’s event took place in Las Vegas, where The Home Depot team set up a replication of an actual store in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.  My team and I were invited to the “Product Walk” where we saw all of our new merchandise set up.  I spoke about my design and branding philosophy to many hundreds of Home Depot associates.  It was very exciting to see how the Martha Stewart Living brand is growing at The Home Depot and we are looking forward to presenting those new products to all of you!
