WORK – A well-considered buy plan means higher profits, thus the RIA KICK Show is laser-focused on creating buying efficiency. Store buyers will see 26 product lines in 3 days in a group format designed to encourage peer sharing and feedback. Private meeting spaces for every brand will allow for a focused, distraction-free presentation environment. And no need to schedule appointments, RIA does that for you.
CONNECT – Store owners, buyers, product marketing teams and brand executives will all come together in a vibrant networking format. Store buyers get product presentations from the people who create the product. At the same time, store owners will 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.
WIN – In addition to a low-cost registration fee, the RIA KICK Show will offer a rebate program for all retail attendees. To earn rebates, simply attend scheduled meetings and write orders based on brand guidelines. Retail attendees can earn rebates up to $1000, paid out in a single check by the RIA. For many, the earned rebates will cover travel and lodging, making the decision to attend a ‘no-brainer’.
