It’s estimated that online shopping will double in the next four years and this creates pressure for store owners.
Now more than ever, it’s key to create and hone an online presence if your business doesn’t already have one. The hard part is knowing where to begin, especially if tech isn’t your forte.
If this applies to you, don’t sweat because the Retail Leaders Summit is hitting up Richmond’s Sheraton Hotel on Tuesday, June 27. And that means you can find out how to make your retail business work – from the experts.
This one-day event brings together entrepreneurs to explore the trend of retail and how its shift online is inevitable. Industry leaders will take you on a journey to better your business by sharing their insights, secrets, and action steps.
Tickets for the event are on sale now and you can take advantage of a discounted early bird rate if you snap yours up before June 1 with general admission tickets going for $97.
This is one event that you don’t want to miss, particularly if you are a small business owner. So far, 2017 has been the biggest year of bankruptcy for retail businesses but this event aims to help you keep your sales alive for years to come.
You’ll hear the good and the bad in business from industry leaders at the event. This includes a talk from founder of the Retail Leaders Summit, CEO of 720 Sweets & Etc, plus Wun2free Entertainment, Wilson Lee.
Lee is a serial entrepreneur who has been recognized in the Top 30 Under 30 awards among many other prestigious titles. His company hosts some of the most popular events in Vancouver and partners with the PNE and Richmond Night Market.
