$60 billion in illicit cannabis sales revenue projected in 2020 in the U.S.

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 26 settembre 2020

New research released today by Growcola reveals that only 28.3% of overall cannabis sales revenue in the U.S. will be generated via legal cannabis sales in the U.S. in 2020. Meanwhile estimated total illicit sales revenue for 2020 in the U.S. is over $60 billion. While legal cannabis markets are getting stronger every year, most cannabis consumers still live in the medical-only markets or states with no legalized cannabis.

Peaks Breaks Through GEICO’s 17 Millionth Policy Sales Goal

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 aprile 2019

The odds of GEICO selling its 17 millionth policy were far better than the one in 302,575,350 shot of winning the Mega Millions lottery. Even so, when Iowa City GEICO sales associate Ty’Shaye Peaks learned she had sold GEICO’s record-breaking 17 millionth policy, she was shocked. “It was like hitting the lottery, everyone in the company has been ecstatic about the sale, and knowing that I contributed to such a milestone has been overwhelming.” Peaks recently sold the policy during a conversation with a caller from Laredo, Texas. “She told me that she had compared all the options and chose to go with GEICO, not only because of the savings but because our process was quick and easy,” Peaks recalled.
“The entire Iowa office is excited about the 17 millionth policy being sold by one of our own,” said Iowa sales/service director Pete Rizzo. “Not only is this an accomplishment for Iowa, but also for all of GEICO. I’m looking forward to the great growth the company has ahead.”Peaks joined GEICO two years ago, starting just months before the company’s 16 millionth policy was sold. Complete customer satisfaction is the goal Peaks set for herself, one that GEICO associates strive to achieve each day. The role Peaks has played in GEICO history has served to reinforce that mission.“I love being a part of the sales team. Every day, we are letting customers know about all the good things about GEICO, and they are listening,” she said. “I’m excited about the opportunities that GEICO has for me in the future.”

Christie’s: The Collector London Sales

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 ottobre 2018

London London – Christie’s will present the autumn edition of The Collector sales on 13 and 14 November in London; an array of decorative arts and furniture ranging across: English Furniture, Clocks & Works of Art; European Furniture, Works of Art & Ceramics, and Silver & 19th Century Furniture, Sculpture & Works of Art.In celebration of the diverse styles and origins of the pieces within the auctions, Christie’s has partnered with avid collector and aesthete Mark-Francis Vandelli, a television personality known for his eccentric and exacting taste, to curate his selection of the sales within The Collector preview, open to the public from 9 to 12 November at the London King Street Galleries.Bringing theatricality and flair to Christie’s sale rooms, Mark-Francis has designed a series of film set-style vignettes; a Manhattan penthouse, a Parisian hôtel particulier and a Roman palazzo. Selected not only in recognition of their status as centres of cultural enlightenment, the recreation of interiors from the three iconic cities reflect the formative locations in which Mark-Francis developed his own aesthetic and appreciation for decorative arts.Orlando Rock, Christie’s UK Chairman and Co-Chairman of Decorative Arts: “Mark-Francis has an eye for the exquisite – and a natural flair that allows him to pick and choose objects across genres, freeing them from their historical shackles of period and place to combine them with panache and style. Mark-Francis’s playfulness and sense of fun dominate in creating very personal, liveable and fresh interiors that are characteristically international. His lifelong love affair with works of art began with auction viewings throughout his childhood – and as a regular visitor to Christie’s and admirer of ‘The Collector’ auctions of decorative arts, we were thrilled when Mark-Francis agreed to work with us to curate three innovative rooms which are representative of the diverse range of styles and periods of objects available in this series of sales. We look forward to welcoming the public to view and enjoy Mark-Francis’s creations in person during the pre-sale exhibition from 9 to 12 November.” Mark-Francis Vandelli: “This collaboration with Christie’s presented a unique opportunity for me to do something entirely different. By creating a series of imposing film sets based on three different cities, we are able to present typically 18th and 19th century works against diverse and unexpected backdrops. These playful, temporary structures allude to the many chapters in these decorative objects’ lives, which will often see them travelling across cultures and continents to new homes, adopted and interpreted each time in a new fashion.”

Online Sales to Drive Half of Retail Growth in Western Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 agosto 2018

Over the next five years, online sales will drive almost half of retail growth in Western Europe. Italy and Spain will see the fastest online sales growth.By 2023, 21% of non-grocery retail sales will be online, up from 13% in 2017. Grocery will be one of the fastest-growing online retail categories.This promising outlook emerges from a new forecast released today by Forrester. The analysis details growth for 22 product categories across 17 countries in Western Europe, with historical online category sales going back to 2002.“We are seeing an increasing consumer confidence that is driving retail sales growth,” says Principal Analyst Michael O’Grady. “In 2017, the European Union economy grew at its fastest pace in a decade. Western European retail sales will grow by 2.8% in 2018. In addition to the consumer confidence, employment rates haven’t been seen so high since the 2008 banking crisis. As expected, online is playing an ever-increasing role in the mix.”Online-only retailers grew their sales faster than the online retail market as they drive much of their sales from marketplaces.“Marketplaces help consumers to research and buy products but also provide payment and fulfilment services to retailers to allow them to expand both domestically and internationally,” explains Mr O’Grady. “Amazon continues to grow faster that the online retail markets across much of Western Europe. We are also seeing AliExpress grow its presence in Europe, most notably in Spain and Italy.”
Forrester expects that more and more retailers will partner with and sell through marketplaces in the future as the boundaries between physical retail stores and marketplaces start to blur.
Meanwhile, many brick-and-mortar retailers, notably in the UK, saw online sales grow and offline sales contract. One-third of UK non-grocery retailing will be online by 2023.To talk to our analysts to understand where the retail market is going, and which strategies companies should put in place to drive revenue growth, please contact Chiara Carella, Public Relations Europe,

christiesZurich 30 May 2016 Over the past 25 years, Christie’s has held 36 dedicated Swiss Art sales, a category which offers our clients around the globe a glimpse into the alpine world of Switzerland. Today, important works by one of Switzerland’s most renowned artists, Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918), such as Der Traum des Hirten or Der Holzfäller, are part of the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, respectively. Both paintings were bought at Christie’s Zurich in the past 10 years and are part of the 6,200 Swiss works of art which have been offered at Christie’s Zurich over the past 25 years.
Over the past decades, a significant development in Swiss artist gallery shows and museum retrospectives has taken place around the globe, including Félix Vallotton at the Grand Palais in Paris, Fischli /Weiss at the Salomon Guggenheim Museum in New York or Ferdinand Hodler at the Neue Galerie, also in New York. This has ignited the interest of international collectors and strong examples of Swiss art can be found from The Pushkin Museum in Moscow to a private collection in Dallas, Texas.
The auction will offer 96 lots covering the art making of all three parts of Switzerland. From the French speaking part of Switzerland comes Coucher de soleil à Grâce, ciel orangé et vert, painted by Felix Vallotton, from the Italian part emanates Il pittore (Alberto Giacometti) painted by Giovanni Giacometti in 1921 and from the German part derives a stunning sculpture made by one of the co-founders of the Dada movement Hans Arp, Dackelpuppe, a white marble sculpture made in 1965.

VW sales figures do not reflect the doom and gloom predicted

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 16 aprile 2016

Christian Stadlercomment on the news the Volkswagen Europe quarterly market share has hit a five-year low. Christian Stadler is a Professor of Strategic Management at Warwick_Business_School_Scarman_road_viewwho has researched the car industry, has made the following statement.
Professor Christian Stadler said: “While the numbers are down, it is actually a far cry from what one would have expected. Of course, that the VW brand has been hit more than others is no surprise, but, considering the furore of ‘dieselgate’ we have definitely not witnessed the demise of the Volkswagen Group that some expected.”There has been a downturn, but it is not a massive one. In fact, as past history of scandals has shown, people are often quick to move on and forget.”What I would say is the numbers do reflect a bigger concern for Volkswagen over its product mix, for example, it does not have new products in the SUV section. This is a bigger problem in China and far more worrying than ‘dieselgate’. Volkswagen has been outpaced by Toyota. Over in China it does not really have a cheap mid-range SUV that the market is after. This is a problem it has been aware of for years, but when challenged about it, things always seem to be another year away.”Volkswagen really need to get this right moving forward as this is perhaps a much bigger issue than the decline in European sales.”
