Registration Goes Live for Summit 2021

By Alan Wolf, YSN

Registration is now open for Summit 2021, BrandSource’s annual spring meeting and product expo.

The now midweek event, slated for Tuesday through Wednesday, March 23-25, will return to the web with a full lineup of product intros, industry updates, vendor trainings, education sessions, and virtual social hours — all presented within an enhanced and easy-to-navigate interface.

Like last year’s industry-first Virtual Convention, the web-based format ensures the safety of attendees and will provide registered members with additional tickets for staff at no extra charge.

Highlights of this year’s “Double Down”-themed Summit will include:

  • a series of short-form vendor sessions, where key manufacturers will be asked to answer seven questions in seven minutes;
  • AVB CEO Jim Ristow’s State of the Union Address;
  • Ten hours of furniture-focused content;
  • A keynote by marketing guru Marcus Sheridan, named one of 20 “Speakers You Don’t Want to Miss” by Forbes;
  • Marketing and merchandising updates by AVB’s John White and Chad Evans, and;
  • BrandSource president Tom Bennett’s Virtual Pool Party & Awards Ceremony.

In between, attendees will get the inside track on the latest appliance, home furnishings and consumer tech launches; vie for prizes in a host of Region- and Summit-wide contests; and connect with vendors and fellow members on the mobile-optimized platform through instant video chat and in-app messaging.
