Yelp To Join Independent Retailer Conference at the Halloween & Party Expo

Parker, CO (January 12, 2017) – The Independent Retailer Conference is excited to welcome Yelp to their upcoming conference taking place at the Halloween & Party Expo in New Orleans on January 14-17, 2017. Having participated in past Independent Retailer Conference events, Yelp looks forward to returning to the Independent Retailer Conference stage – as well as joining the Independent Retailer Conference experience at the Halloween & Party Expo for the first time.

We love engaging with store owners and the users of Yelp, so participating in the Independent Retailer Conference is a great way to do this. We’re big fans of retail in particular and excited to connect with attendees of the Halloween & Party Expo,” shared Genna Gold, Manager of Local Business Outreach with Yelp, Inc. 

The Independent Retailer Conference will deliver education-rich, action-packed sessions directly on the show floor of the Halloween & Party Exo – offering attendees the chance to engage, learn and connect with retail experts, industry leaders, service providers and like-minded entrepreneurs. Attendees of the Halloween & Party Expo can expect interactive experiences that leave them better educated and more inspired, such as the ones Yelp will deliver during this 4-day event. In addition to Yelp, educational sessions will be delivered by Square, Refund Retriever, RSMA, SellerActive and Kizer and Bender.
