We eliminated expensive expo booths and the typical noisy atmosphere with constant distractions. Instead, RIA KICK Show attendees are treated to a focused, time-efficient and cost-effective working show designed to create a high level of connection between member retailers and the top footwear, apparel, and accessory brands in the channel.
WORK – A well-considered buy plan means higher profits, thus the RIA KICK Show is laser-focused on creating buying efficiency. Store buyers will see product lines in a group format designed to encourage peer sharing and feedback. Private meeting spaces and no need to schedule appointments.
CONNECT – Store owners, buyers, product marketing teams and brand executives all come together in a vibrant networking format. Store buyers get product presentations from the people who create the product. Store owners meet with brand executives in ‘top-to-top’ meetings to create stronger brand/store connections and allow feedback, questions, and discussion on industry issues.
WIN – In addition to a low-cost registration fee, the RIA KICK Show offers a rebate program for all retail attendees. To earn rebates, simply attend scheduled meetings and write orders based on brand guidelines. Retail attendees can earn rebates up to $1000, paid out in a single check by the RIA. For many, the earned rebates will cover travel and lodging, making the decision to attend a ‘no-brainer’.
