On August 28, Las Vegas will play host to BrandSource’s annual convention as our membership converges on the Nevada desert for yet another exciting mix of business and pleasure. This year’s four-day event, held at Caesars Palace hotel and casino on the city’s famed Las Vegas Strip, is sure to be our most successful convention yet.
While in Las Vegas, the BrandSource faithful will be treated to an array of educational seminars, informative workshops, and motivational speeches by prominent figures in the retail business. They will also have the opportunity to view over 200 unique exhibits amid 200,000 square feet of space on three floors within the hotel where exhibitors will be showcasing the latest models in the home appliance, bedding, furniture, outdoor, and electronics industry. As in previous conventions, significant time has been allotted for members to co-mingle and network. The schedule is packed with various social activities and entertainment options to ensure that members experience their share of fun while basking in the Las Vegas sunshine.
This year’s convention is notable for the sheer amount of information that will be made available to members. The schedule is packed with a virtual tutorial of the retail industry in the hopes that listeners will emerge from the convention with some additional knowledge that may prove useful to their business. Numerous educational sessions, product training, and workshops are all open to BrandSource membership.
