  • Create high-performance retail experiences with product engagement.
  • Ensure ability to add in high-impact digital elements for retail theatre. 
  • Provide a Garmin-specific security system with multiple options to provide the right level of theft-prevention in-store.

  • Adaptable graphics and product holders allow the same display family to work across the diverse range of Garmin category products. 
  • Connected smart screens with our Connie system allow customized content for lift-and-learn solutions wherever in the world displays are placed.
  • A range of technology integration options to achieve the right ROI for the retail opportunity.
  • Custom security system with gold, silver and bronze options ensures retailers have the right level of protection for their needs.

The results
