TheCollinsGroup Retailer Symposium
Columbus Convention Center
March 30 – April 1, 2023
In partnership with Creativation by NAMTA – April 2-4, 2023
About The Event:
We are excited to open registration for our In-Person Retailer Symposium at Creativation by NAMTA.
All classes are specially planned for independent Crafting Retailers and your team--store managers, and in-house teachers. Events are planned so that you can return to your store with not only the best new products, but also with the latest paper crafting techniques to help GROW YOUR BUSINESS and SELL MORE PRODUCT. Our classes provide you with complete projects and instructions that you can take back to your store and teach to your customers - thus building enthusiasm and maximizing sales.
This package includes a Product Lightning Round to learn about new releases, 2 full days of craft classes, and a Sample Making Frenzy. Please Note: This package DOES NOT include lunch. The Convention Center has told us the food court will be open during our lunch break with multiple options available.
Product Lightning Round: Start the show off with a fast-paced overview of the latest and greatest product offerings from our attending vendors! You will not want to miss this fun and informative event (especially with all the exciting surprise giveaways) where new product will be unveiled and reviewed.
Sample Making Frenzy: This amazing night is not to be missed! Our vendors will have tables in the ballroom each teaching a 3-5 minute make-and-take. This is a great evening of sample-making, desserts, friends and fun!
Ten 90-minute classes over Friday and Saturday: These classes are specially designed and taught by leading craft industry vendors – so that you can take them back to your store and re-teach them several times. Note: In most of the 10 sessions, there will be 2 classes to choose from. Each attendee will select one class from each session.
The price for the full package is $475. The first person from a show is required to register for the full package. If a second person is attending, they can select between the full package at $475 or a la carte options. If selecting a la carte, the Sample Making Frenzy is $75, class sessions are $50 each.
Note that you will fill out a separate registration form for each attendee from your store.
As always, we truly appreciate your support of our events. We look forward to seeing you in Columbus!
