The Gift Basket Industry has a need for business education. Gift Basket Professionals are constantly seeking new ways to gain that education and information to run a successful business. There is currently no other venue that offers business education classes specifically modeled for our industry.
We are not offering classes on how to make a bow; we are offering classes on how to treat your business as a business and not a hobby. Our classes offer tips, tools and resources on how to set up, how to maintain and how to grow your business. They focus on the professionalism needed in this industry to be successful.
Gift Basket business owners need to attend trade shows to learn about the various products offered to our industry and to keep up to date on product trends. It is important to build a relationship with the vendors to gain the knowledge needed to properly sell their products.
As a vendor, you are welcome to attend the seminar classes. We plan to continue offering as much education as possible to keep the standards of our industry above consumer expectation, including our vendor’s products.
Networking is an important foundation to a successful business. There will be various opportunities to network with the attendees, including a full breakfast each morning and the Awards Ceremony on Saturday night on a famous New Orleans’ Steamboat.
The Trade Show will be for 3 hours on Saturday and 6 hours on Sunday.
The speakers include Mary Ann Jacobs, an icon in the industry and other established professionals.
