TNNA is just around the corner; and the team at Soak couldn’t be more excited to see you there!
We want you to make sure you take advantage of all the events and promotions TNNA has in store so we’ve put together a laundry list of things for you to get ready:
- Register in advance to talk to your suppliers:
Call, email and set appointments with your vendors and suppliers. This helps you organize your trip, plan your needs and be more prepared when you arrive on site.
- Discover What’s New, Saturday, Sunday & Monday All Day:
Along with our colleagues, we’re featuring a new product called Flatter in the Discover What’s New area. It’s located outside of the exhibit hall, and you’ll get an exclusive preview the newest and hottest products at this season’s show. It’s also a great place to meet other retailers as they browse the displays.
- Sample IT, Friday 5-6:00pm:
Be sure to attend this free event. Sample IT is the perfect way to try out new yarns, meet new suppliers and get your hands on product launches before anyone else. You’ll be able to sample the products, and go home with product on the day of the event! P.S. It’s a first come - first serve event so make sure you get here early to avoid lining up!
- The Quest Saturday, Sunday & Monday All Day:
Make sure you sign up for the quest. Retailers and designers will have the opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt across the exhibition floor. Hosted by Yarn Group, this event is the perfect way to explore booths you may not have on your to do list. Only Yarn Group members can participate, so make sure you sign up here: http://www.tnna.org/?page=ProductSegmentGroups#yarn
- Buyers Bucks Saturday, Sunday & Monday All Day:
NEW THIS YEAR! Each store registered for the show will receive $1000 in "Buyer Bucks" in a variety of denominations. Use these as cash as you shop the show floor. It’s a great way to try new products and take a risk where you might not otherwise. Participating exhibitors will have their own promotion to share with you. Share the rest of your buyer bucks with great vendors throughout the show.
We look forward to seeing you at TNNA in San Diego.
