ASD Market Week + Hubba Hit the Road to Celebrate Small Business Week With Retail Minded
Parker, CO (April 20, 2018) – As part of National Small Business Week Hubba and ASD Market Week will be joining forces with retail global thought leader Nicole Reyhle of Retail Minded to celebrate the growing role of small businesses in the next generation of commerce. A growing number of consumers are in search of unique and higher quality goods, and small businesses are in a better position to win those customers and their high margin purchases than traditional big box companies that to date have dominated the headlines.
In celebration of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week, Nicole Reyhle – along with representatives from Hubba and ASD – will visit five select cities with successful small businesses that act as examples for building thriving Main Streets in the US.
- April 30 – Sonoma / Napa
- May 1 – San Francisco
- May 2 – Austin
- May 3- Denver
- May 4 – Parker, CO
In each city, special guests will join Nicole to share their firsthand experiences of small business success – as well as shed light on some of their challenges and how they overcome them.
We’re excited to bring retail front and center during Small Business Week and highlight some of the amazing, hard working small business owners who attend ASD Market Week,” shares Camille Candella, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for ASD Market Week.
From April 29th to May 5th, follow @ASDShow + @Hubba + @RetailMinded on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as we shine a light on independent retailers and how they are differentiating themselves from larger competitors and attract a strong customer base. We’ll feature live interviews hosted by Nicole Reyhle and highlight key trends and insights on how these and other small businesses are finding success, exploring merchandising, marketing, inventory management, customer service, competing with online marketplaces and more.
Each day thousands of independent retailers come to Hubba to discover the emerging brands that will help them attract customers and grow their business,” says Ben Zifkin, CEO Founder at Hubba. “We are excited to team up with Nicole Reyhle from Retail Minded and ASD Market Week to shine a light on those independent retailers that are successfully differentiating themselves and with a combination of technology and personal curation beating larger competitors in the retail industry.”
