Monthly Magazines

NHPA publishes two industry magazines. Both publications provide readers with feature articles, retail profiles, category trends, research and more. Editors and designers often travel to conduct interviews and photoshoots.

Online Education

NHPA is the industry leader in retail training and education. We develop, design and launch courses on everything from basic retail knowledge and selling skills to advanced leadership and management training.

Social Media

Digital Media

In addition to our print magazines, events and online training we produce a range of other digital communications including newsletters, websites and podcasts.

Research Projects
