(Newswire.net — February 13, 2017) San Francisco, CA — Karen Waksman, founder of Retail MBA, reveals the return of their popular live event to the San Francisco, Bay Area. Thirty participants will have the opportunity to learn from Karen Waksman and meet with CVS Drugstore representatives.
The original live event was held in San Francisco in November 2016. Participants from around the United States attended and met with vendor representatives from retailers such as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, Kroger Grocery Store. At the upcoming sequel event, buyers from CVS Drugstores will answer questions on a Q&A panel discussion as well as meet with attendees one-on-one to discuss their products.
The all-day seminar runs from 9 AM to 6 PM on March 3, 2017 with registration starting at 8 AM, and is broken into three sections. The morning portion will focus on discussion panels and a Q&A with vendor representatives. The afternoon will consist of one-on-one buyer product review meetings. The day-long event will close with strategy sessions covering the logistics of expanding product lines into retail stores.
Retail MBA’s LIVE event seminars will cover getting started with selling to chain stores, advanced retail strategies, tips for face-to-face meetings with buyers, how to ensure repeat retail orders, sales distribution strategies and success stories from clients of Waksman. The day-long event will also include a Chain Store Buyer Q&A Panel and a Retail Logistics Panel.
The event will be hosted at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Hotel Waterfront. Shuttles to and from the airport will be provided for attendees.
The founder of Retail MBA and the host of the event, Karen Waksman, is a consultant, author, and speaker. Waksman started her career as a Manufacturer’s Representative. Waksman recently released the Retail MBA online course. “The Retail MBA LIVE event is a game changer for physical product companies who want to get their products in the stores. Attendees will not only receive powerful training and one-on-one coaching on how to get their products on retail shelves, but they will also get their products reviewed by major chain store buyers during or after the event,” said Waksman.
Retail MBA’s event will be limited to 30 attendees. Entrepreneurs can purchase tickets to the event on Retail MBA’s website. The tickets are being sold first-come first-served and a 3-part payment plan is available. Prospective attendees will be placed on a waiting list if the 30 tickets are sold out.
Representative buyers from CVS Drugstores will be at the event in March to meet with attendees and discuss their products lines as well as answer questions during the Chain Store Buyer Q&A Panel. CVS currently has over 9600 physical store locations across the United States.
