Retailer Symposium - 4:45pm-6:00pm
***Back By Popular Demand***
Come share your success stories with other retailers and learn about their best ideas and successes.  We ask that you come prepared to discuss one product (sold by an exhibiting vendor) that is selling particularly well, one great marketing idea or one promotion that has been particularly successful in your store.

This will be a round robin-type session of our retailers sharing ideas helping each other grow their businesses.  Help other retailers determine what item(s) they must not pass up at the tradeshow - and go home with several new ideas from your peers.
