The World and Main Houston Fall Buying Market will be held July 28–30 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
Along with discounts of as much as 75 percent, along with market buys and cash spiffs available only on the show floor, there will be several entertainment options, including a concert by Texas country singer-songwriter, Jody Booth.
Retailers can also take time at the market to visit with hundreds of exhibitors, discuss new ideas and trends, and gain access to new products and industry information. This year’s fall market will also feature several resources retailers can take advantage of to help drive their success in 2017.
“The World and Main Houston Market is a critical buying event for our dealers across the Southwest,” says Craig Cowart, president of World and Main’s retail distribution division. “At our earlier Spring Market, we raised the bar, and we plan to further exceed our dealers’ expectations at this Fall Market by not only offering deep discounts, but also giving them the tools they need to continue to compete.”
One key topic that will be addressed is succession planning. In order to help retailers identify and prepare their employees to fill key business roles, the market will include a Friday lunch educational discussion that will focus on succession planning.
