Dear Colleagues and Guests,
I am delighted to extend an invitation for you to attend the 2014 Retail Merchandising and Marketing Conference in San Antonio, Texas from April 26-29, 2014! This annual conference offers an avenue for meeting top industry leaders from around the world and provides an opportunity to gather relevant information from a few of the most exciting speakers in the country. The conference agenda is packed with exciting industry topics and has been designed to provide a comprehensive look at ways of taking our industry and our organizations to the next level.
The world of retail marketing has become extremely competitive and manufacturers look to the retail service industry to help bring their in-store visions to life. To compete, it is important to elevate our brands by gaining cutting edge insight that can be translated into strategies. To execute cutting edge strategies, it is imperative to energize our workforce and promote a spirit of excellence. In order to promote a spirit of excellence, it is important to enhance our capacity to sustain a high standard of program development and execution.
It is no surprise therefore, that the theme for the 2014 Retail Merchandising and Marketing Conference is :
Elevate (your Brand) Energize (your Workforce) Enhance (your Sustainability)
We want to make it easy for you to create the conference experience that works best for your company. Therefore, we have a specific GROUP conference rate available and encourage you to bring your teams. I believe you and your team will certainly see the benefits of interacting with like-minded colleagues to stimulate an exchange of ideas to grow your business.
