SnapRetail to Join Independent Retailer Conference at Craft and Hobby Association’s MEGA Show

Parker, CO (October 13, 2014) – The Independent Retailer Conference is excited to announce that SnapRetail will join them as an official sponsor at the upcoming Independent Retailer Conference at the Craft & Hobby Association’s (CHA) MEGA Show, taking place in Anaheim, California on January 9-13, 2015.

We are excited to once again partner with the Independent Retailer Conference at the January 2015 Mega Show hosted by the Craft and Hobby Association”, said Suzy Teele, SnapRetail COO. “The Independent Retailer Conference continues to be one of our most valuable relationships for leads and sales.”

SnapRetail, the leader in marketing automation for independent retailers and merchant businesses, is used by thousands of retailers worldwide. In addition to being cost-effective for merchants to use for their businesses, SnapRetail is also widely recognized as being a leader in supporting independent retailers with up-to-date, relevant education for merchants to apply directly to their stores. Their addition to the Independent Retailer Conference at the Craft and Hobby Association’s annual MEGA Show will no doubt help attendees further succeed in their store operations, with SnapRetail prepared to deliver multiple presentations discussing email marketing, social media, website management and more.

We always strive to deliver timely, independent retail specific education at all of our Independent Retailer Conference events, and we always turn to SnapRetail to help us do this. They are a huge asset to our events and we look forward to welcoming them at the upcoming Independent Retailer Conference at the Craft and Hobby Association’s MEGA Show in January 2015,” Kerry Bannigan, Co-Founder of the Independent Retailer Conference, stated.

Known for being a leader in supporting the nearly $30 billion dollar craft and hobby industry, the Craft & Hobby Association produces an annual event that connects attendees with over 400 vendors during the annual, five day Show. With education also a top priority, the Independent Retailer Conference is a welcomed addition that will expand upon the MEGA Show’s current educational line-up.

The Independent Retailer Conference has previously held their events in Chicago, New York City and Las Vegas since 2011. By hosting pop up conferences on site at trade shows like the Craft and Hobby Association’s MEGA Show, the Independent Retailer Conference can reach more retailers while also supporting them during their important buying trips.

We’re excited to join the Craft & Hobby Association’s MEGA Show and deliver retail-rich, educational experiences while also introducing retail attendees to some fantastic businesses such as SnapRetail. Having worked with SnapRetail many times in the past, we’re particularly excited to have them join us again since we know they are an attendee favorite,” Independent Retailer Conference Co-Founder Nicole Leinbach Reyhle states.
