Asheville, NC — It’s an exciting and busy time at EORA! The organization has welcomed 53 new members so far this year and is kicking off the summer season with four upcoming shows in June. All shows are filling up fast, at venues in New England, the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Shows start June 14-16 in Somerset, NJ and continue with two shows June 21-23 – in both Manchester, NH and Greenville, SC. The final June show takes place in Lakeland, FL June 28-29.
While space is still available for exhibitors at the New Jersey show, the New Hampshire show is sold out and there are only a handful of booths left in South Carolina.
A highlight of the upcoming New Hampshire show is a presentation by Todd Poseley of NPD Group. He’ll be providing insights on current channel trends, specialty retail, profit drivers and high GMROI categories.
Coming up at the South Carolina show, EORA presents a retail seminar by noted footwear and apparel industry expert Marty Cohen. Mr. Cohen’s topic will be “It’s Not Magic: Profitable Seasons are Planned & Made When You Buy, NOT When You Sell.”
