Best Business Information comes from your Peers

Posted By TNNA Staff, Wednesday, December 22, 2010

The most recent survey of specialty needlearts confirms that needlearts shop owners consider their peers as the most valuable source of information to help them run their businesses. That’s where the real life, practical insight lies.

Of course, you can talk on the phone, email and text, or skype with your colleagues . . . But how often do you get to connect directly with those industry professionals you don’t already know? TNNA’s trade shows continue to provide multiple opportunities and venues to reach beyond your small circle and extend your reach into the whole family of specialty needlearts.

More formal classes in business management, marketing and techniques are always important. The TIPS program is a full array of the best new ideas in — of course — Trends, Ideas & Products — brought to you by our very own exhibitors.

This is a relatively new program for TNNA, and has been very well received by all our attendees. TIPS is happening on Friday, January 7, 2011 from 8 — 11 AM during TNNA’s Winter Trade Show in the Long Beach (California) Convention Center. During those 3 hours, participants attend up to six 30-minute sessions (which run concurrently) for a mere $35.

As an added bonus, if you register in advance, you can add the Retailer Luncheon for only $25 more (a savings of $10). The luncheon isn’t only about food. This is really the best opportunity to spend time with fellow shop owners, catch up on what they’ve been doing, and find out how they’ve been dealing with the challenges of today.

In addition, there will be a free and open, interactive panel (including representatives of all the different disciplines and types of companies) focusing on marketing issues that same afternoon. Just another opportunity to hear from, talk with, and learn from your industry peers.

If you haven’t already registered, now’s the time to do it. Online, it’s easy and fast. Maybe this is the Christmas gift you give yourself this year? Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!
