A key feature of the Retail Shippers Expo is the Trade Show. This is your best chance to get that all-important face time with the carriers, vendors, and suppliers who provide us with the crucial products and services that allow us to build and grow our businesses. In addition to the long-term providers and vendors, exciting NEW products and services will be exhibited and demonstrated (some for the FIRST time). As the industry's largest trade show, the Retail Shippers Expo Trade Show should be on your list of "Can't Miss" events in 2016.
The State-of-the-Industry General Session is the "official" kick-off for the Retail Shippers Expo. A presentation by RS Associates President Brandon Gale will get the RS Expo started as he shares his view of where we are going as an industry.
As part of the General Session, a review of the Expo schedule of events will guide you through the what, when, and where of the event to ensure you take full advantage of the content-packed program.
Breakouts, breakouts, and more breakouts! Some of the best "nuggets of knowledge" are picked up during the breakout sessions. These informative classes are presented by bona fide industry subject-matter experts and cover a wide range of topics, ranging from store operations to new profit centers. A long list of highly requested sessions run throughout the event. Plan on attending as many as you can.
Your Point of Sale software is the powerplant that helps you run your business efficiently, accurately, and as profitably as possible. Today's systems are some of the most robust and dynamic of any retail POS systems available. As an owner, you need to know how to take full advantage of everything these powerful tools are designed to do. Industry POS providers PostalMate® and ShipRite© will provide user training and system update classes throughout the weekend.
