Kit Session

Kit Session

When: Sunday, June 9
Time: 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Who: Full Conference Retailer Attendees Only*
Handout: Kit Session Cheat Sheet

This hands-on session allows you to take Marketplace's newest kits out of the box and try them out with a room full of other retailers. This session provokes creativity and gives you one-on-one time to learn about the latest kits on the market. 

How it Works
We'll set up 30 tables with one manufacturer at each table. You spend eight minutes at a demonstration table, and then have two minutes to move to the next demonstration table of your choice for a total of 12 rotations. 

Refreshments and snacks are provided compliments of our sponsors for the comfort of our attendees.

*Please note that, as a full conference event, children under the age of 13 are not allowed to attend Kit Session. Only children 13 and older who are registered for the full conference can attend with parental supervision. Only exhibitors who apply and are approved for a Kit Session Hosted Table are allowed to attend and demonstrate their products.

Put a Face to the Company

"It's a great opportunity to really talk to and build relationships with vendors directly. In a smaller setting [than other shows], vendors can really listen to the concerns of smaller retailers. It's also great to be able to put a face to the companies we order from on a daily basis. [...] The Game Night and Kit Session are also huge bonuses. Really enjoy this show."
