Shackman Associates has coordinated special shopping experiences for incentive travel clients, and while a few glasses of champagne at Saks 5th Avenue remains popular, this is an experience that has become exponentially more imaginative throughout the city.
Want something funky? Boutiques in the Lower East Side and SoHo are pushing the envelope with the latest designs from Italy and independent designers.
If you want to completely bypass the showroom, we recommend "Behind the Scenes Tours" with manufacturers in the Garment District. You'll get the first crack at hot fashion before the retailers do and manufacturers are providing comfort at the level you'll see at any storefront on 5th Avenue.
Destination Incentive shopping tours today provide the shoes you'll wear at the beach this summer.
Private shopping tours are providing the same comfort you'll get at major retailers.
