The city of Orlando, Florida, welcomed retailers from around the country for the 2021 Ace Hardware Fall Convention and the Emery Jensen Edge Trade Show. Both events took place at the Orange County Convention Center from September 21 – 25.
Our BBI Special Markets Team was very excited to welcome all retailers to the first in-person national trade shows in over 18 months. Most of the attendees were already familiar with the brands we represented and spoke highly of the success in their stores.
Retailers and Account Managers were able to review incredible promotions from 1000+ vendors and had the opportunity to network with industry leaders and peers.
As stated by Ace Hardware CEO John Venhuizen - “Our retailers wanted this, and they were energized. We did a great job leveraging the digital conventions, but there is nothing like being back face-to-face.”
