New Port Richey, FL—Seventy-five retail stores participated in the Southeast NPA (SENPA)’s education tour this summer.
On their multi-city tour, SENPA board members and event sponsors visited stores in or near Atlanta, GA; Columbia, SC; and Asheville, NC. Then, SENPA organized daylong educational seminars in each city. Participants were treated gift bags of samples and had the chance to win raffle prizes including a free night’s stay at the Gaylord Convention and Hotel during SOHO Expo.
“These events brought independent retailers, the lifeblood of our industry, together in a unique way that could only be done by an association like SENPA,” said Ryan Sensenbrenner, marketing manager at Enzymedica and a keynote speaker during the event. “In an ever-evolving industry, the power of education cannot be underestimated.”
A 2017 Strategies for Success Road Show is being planned for next spring/summer.
