CUSTOMIZED SHOW EXPERIENCE
- Buyers – You won’t be automatically scheduled to see every attending brand. Instead, you tell us which of the attending brands are your key brands, and we’ll include them in your appointment plan.
- Store Owners – You won’t automatically be scheduled for Top-to-Top Meetings with every brand. Instead, you will tell us which brands you prefer to meet with in Top-To-Top meetings, and you can also attend product presentations if desired.
The RIA will then create a customized appointment schedule just for you, based on your preferences.
FLEXIBLE BUYING TRACK FORMAT
KICK Show 2.0 will offer buying tracks for Footwear, Apparel, and Accessories. As a buyer, you’ll have the choice of focusing your show schedule on a single buying category, or you can mix it up and see brands from all three categories.
ELEVATED BUYING EFFICIENCY
Our goal is to make it easy to generate orders after the show. So prior to KICK 2.0, our attending brands will work with registered retailers to ensure buyers are well prepped with suggested buy plans and product assortments.
MORE TIME TO REVIEW PRODUCT
Every brand attending KICK Show 2.0 will be there for the 2 ½ day duration of the show, and the appointment schedule will ensure plenty of time for complete line presentations.
EMERGING BRAND SHOWCASE
Six new brands, each with new and exciting product opportunities for our retail members, will pitch their stories to show attendees in a unique and efficient new format.
Back by popular demand! Store owners have a unique opportunity to meet with brand executives. These open format, ‘top-to-top’ meetings will create stronger brand/store connections and allow feedback, questions, and discussion on industry issues.
EARN REBATES EASILY
We’ve eliminated the requirement to place orders in order to earn rebates. For KICK Show 2.0, rebates will be based solely on attending product presentations. The RIA will pay $30 per appointment, with no limit on the total rebate you can earn.
IMPROVED SHOW TIMING
KICK Show 2.0 will end at noon on he Thursday, May 14th, allowing our members time to return home without the need to travel late or stay an extra night.
IT’S ALL ABOUT SUPPORT
The KICK Show is produced by the RIA as an exclusive benefit to our members. When you attend the show, you support the RIA and our efforts to strengthen the channel and bring value to your business.
