A look back in photos at this week’s Summit

By YSN Staff

The curtain has come down on another successful Summit, which brought out the best and the brightest in independent retail.

This week’s gathering in Las Vegas drew the largest BrandSource crowd ever for a Summit show, along with robust representation by AVB’s Mega Group, NEAG, Intercounty and ProSource affiliates. 

Together, members “plugged in” to new cutting-edge platforms and services to help their businesses flourish, and hopefully left with some new ideas to implement and memories to cherish.

Next up is the national Convention in Nashville in August. Until then, here are some scenes from Summit.
