Four days of learning, bonding, buying and fun

Another BrandSource Convention has come and gone, leaving plugged-in members wealthier in wisdom, spirit and savings.

There was plenty of each to go around this week as dealers, vendors and AVB staff convened at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. From the plethora of Stampede deals and an unprecedented funding match for holiday and first-quarter promotions, to a full-throttled home furnishings foray and gangbuster cluster of incisive seminars, Convention 2023 was clearly looking pretty in Music City.

Here’s a look back in pictures at this week’s exhibition. The group will reconvene for the next round of fresh ideas, actionable insights and innovative initiatives at Summit 2024, running March 24-27 at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
