ATLANTA and PITTSBURGH - Urban Expositions, the leading producer of gift, souvenir and airport concessions trade shows in the U.S, and SnapRetail, the leading provider of marketing automation software for independent retailers, have teamed to provide a series of educational seminars with exclusive content for Urban Exposition trade show attendees.
SnapRetail will provide a free retail marketing boot camp consisting of a series of seminars on the latest trends in social media, email marketing and other topics relevant to independent retailers during many of Urban Expositions' gift and souvenir trade shows throughout the remainder of 2014. Locations include Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, Orlando, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. SnapRetail Customer Forums will also be held at select locations in conjunction with the boot camp.
"We are delighted to partner with Urban Expositions to bring free education to an audience we are both passionate about - the independent retailer," said Suzy Teele, COO, SnapRetail. "We've worked with thousands of store owners to help them better engage with customers and drive store traffic using the latest online marketing techniques, and we look forward to sharing this knowledge with Urban Expositions' attendees at their trade shows throughout the US."
"We believe it is just as important to provide meaningful education on how to market the products retailers purchase at our shows as it is to give them a great environment to learn about new products and meet with vendors," adds Doug Miller, president, Urban Expositions. "That's why we are excited to partner with SnapRetail."
The first Retail Marketing Bootcamp will be held at the California Gift Show in July 2014. For a complete schedule, please visit the Urban Expositions website.
