You tell us which brands and/or categories you want to see, and the RIA will pre-schedule your appointments with your top-priority choices – all available on an easy-to-use KICK Show mobile app.

WORK: A well-considered buy plan means higher profits, thus the RIA KICK Show is laser-focused on creating buying efficiency. Store buyers can schedule as many as 26 product presentations in 2 1/2 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. Remember:  no need to schedule appointments…the 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 your scheduled meetings.  You’ll be reimbursed for each meeting you attend.  Retail attendees can earn rebates up to $600, 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’
