GC Buying Group has debuted its schedule for its annual Start The Year event. The summit is set to take place on January 9 and 10 at AmericasMart Atlanta, in conjunction with the January Atlanta International Gift + Home Furnishings Market.
“The GC Start the Year Member Conference has always been an excellent show of strength for the independent retailer,” said Janis Johnson, founder and president of GC Buying Group. “Having stores and vendors interface, share experiences, and learn from each other speaks to the passion and commitment on both sides.”
Highlights will include group discussions, guest speakers, networking lunches, two new technology program launches, dinner and drinks at the Capital City Club, and the exclusive vendor showcase. Topics covered will include social media and marketing.
A more complete schedule of events will be available closer to the meeting, according to GC.
