Widely regarded as the only retailer show in the industry started by independent retailers for independent retailers, the 14th Annual Uniform Retailers Association (URA) Trade Show will proceed as planned this year, but as a virtual show to be attended online.
It’s creatively designed to ensure the attendees will get the maximum value out of it, despite not being present in person.
The trade show will kick-off on October 25th with an introductory announcement from the URA Board, and then followed by a welcome party with White Swan Bands.
The show will proceed until November 3rd and will treat attendees with educational offerings, special events, and much more.
The trade show offers retailers a rich learning experience by presenting educational sessions on what is currently driving the industry, as well as a chance to learn from the top market leaders. Practical solutions and best management practices will be shared throughout the show with invaluable takeaways on managing your business better.
While the URA Trade Show always has been known to be a great platform for exhibiting new designs, fabrics, and products, and learning from leading industry retail experts, it was never this important to attend the show, given how things have unraveled on the onset of the pandemic.
The trade show will serve as a great learning experience in understanding how the uniform market has been affected by COVID-19. Participants will learn about new technologies that can help grow your business, how to market in a COVID-19 world, and to future-proof your business.
In addition, attendees also can participant in more lighthearted activities like a magic show and lucky draws.
