KICK SHOW 2.0

WHAT’S NEW AT KICK SHOW 2.0

Learn More
Our members told us what they wanted from KICK Show 2.0, and we listened!  The information below describes how we’re amplifying the format for 2020.

CUSTOMIZED SHOW EXPERIENCE

Buyers will be able to customize their show experience by signing up for the brands and/or categories they want to see – footwear, apparel or accessories.  The RIA will then create each buyer’s customized schedule.  Simple and efficient!

Store owners will be able to customize their show experience as well.  They will be able to sign up for the brands they want to see in top-to-top meetings, or attend product presentations, or some of both.  Once again, RIA will create owner’s schedules.

ELEVATED BUYING  EFFICIENCY

Prior to the show, KICK Show brands will work with attending retailers to ensure buyers are well prepped with suggested buy plans and product assortments when they attend product presentations.

NEW BUYING TRACKS

KICK Show 2.0 will feature buying tracks for footwear, apparel, and accessories.  Buyers have the choice of seeing only their category focus if they choose, or they can mix it up and see brands from all three categories (footwear, apparel or accessories).

SIMPLIFIED REBATE PROGRAM

No need to place orders to earn rebates. For KICK Show 2.0, rebates will be based solely on attending product presentations.  Show up, and get a check.  It’s really that simple!

EMERGING BRAND SHOWCASE

Six new brands, each with new and exciting product opportunities for retail attendees, will pitch their stories in a unique and efficient format. During a one-hour block on day one and two, retailers will receive multiple 15-20 minute line presentations from hand-selected, up and coming brands. It is a great way add fresh lines to your product mix and earn rebates, just for showing up.

IMPROVED SHOW TIMING

KICK Show 2.0 will end at noon on the Thursday, May 14th, allowing our members time to return home without the need to travel late or stay an extra night.

RIA BEST IN SHOW

Retailers will be asked to participate in the RIA Best in Show product award by casting their vote for new products submitted by participating brands. There will be one winner for each category and one for overall “BEST IN SHOW”.

WORK. CONNECT. WIN.
