Fast-paced “Rep-Around” presentations & free product

Sunday, July 8, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Located in Washington B
$35 to Attend (Ticket Required) • Free Product

In this UNITE session, retailers will enjoy fast-paced presentations featuring new products from sponsors. Trends analyses will be interspersed. Hors d’oeuvres will be provided.

Retailers will sit at tables around the room, and each exhibiting rep will give presentations in five-minute increments. As a retailer, you’ll see quick presentations of the latest trends and products. Each five minutes, the reps will move to another table. The reps will be available after the session to answer further questions and pass out products.

Some reps may offer the opportunity to make purchases during the sessions, and some may use the time to gain feedback. Therefore, as a retailer, you will have the opportunity to both share your feedback,  receive special offers, and get free products.

Note: Space is limited to first 120 retailers to sign up. Sign up during online registration. Waitlist will be let in with $35 purchase at 6:45 p.m. Product will not be provided post-event.
