12 ReTech Opens Technology Showroom in Zurich, Switzerland
Las Vegas, NV & Hong Kong, Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 12 ReTech Corporation (OTCQB: RETC) announced today that it has opened a technology showroom in Zurich, Switzerland, partnering with Pietro Coppola, who has assumed a management role in our subsidiary 12 Europe, AG. This will allow the Company to demonstrate the fully integrated 12 Technology Suite to European luxury brands and their retail partners. The Company intends to use this showroom to demonstrate the value proposition that the 12Mirror, 12AdScreen and the 12InStore, 12Mobile and 12Sconti APPs offer to retailers.
Angelo Ponzetta, 12 ReTech’s CEO stated, “We have created an impressive venue for showing off our technology. Pietro Coppola will now use his European contacts in the luxury retail sectors to attract interest in our products and value proposition. This will give us the opportunity to work with Europe’s most famous luxury brands as well as their retailers.
Angelo Ponzetta continued, “The new facility was conceived to become a much-talked-about showroom for European luxury goods and high-end fashion. It will feature dressing rooms and retail displays in a 2,000+ square feet floorspace. We plan to cycle brands to constantly feature new ideas for the visiting retailers. We will integrate our 12 Technology Suite into the fabric of the showroom operations so that leading designers can show their fashion collections using a new medium (by appointment only). This represents an excellent way to get in front of Europe’s prestigious retailers and show them how our technology can provide value to their businesses.”
Pietro Coppola, 12 Europe’s CEO said, “After reviewing the 12 Technology Suite I am very impressed for what it can do to help retailers bring back excitement to their stores. It engages shoppers, potentially lowers retailer’s operating expenses and helps to achieve higher sales. I am looking forward to introducing the 12 ReTech’s technology to the retailers and luxury brands that I personally have been working with for decades. This can be wonderful for my clients. I want to introduce all of them to these ideas that I believe will provide great benefit to their businesses.”
Angelo Ponzetta finished, “There is a lot going on in our pipeline of business in all three of our major markets. I hope to soon have some exciting news about some new acquisitions that we are negotiating.”
About Pietro Coppola:
After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Pietro worked for various retailers of luxury goods brands in Europe. In a stint with Anteprima Diffusione Moda A.G., he was involved with the expansion of Swiss sales channels for many European brands of men’s underwear, including Armani, Versace, La Perla and others. Later, he bought into the company and obtained licenses for the same brands for Austria and Germany.
