Retail Peer2Peer Workshop: Selling a Retail Experience with Can't Miss Events and Workshops

Sat. July 14| 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM | A223

Classes, workshops, and events in your garden center are an excellent way to invite customers in, engage with them, and stimulate new sales. But how do you begin planning for a new class or event for your customers? And how do you get them to actually show up? Join a panel of creative and ambitious garden retailers who will share their tips for getting inspired and innovative when it comes to putting on amazing and “can't-miss” events. During this half-day peer-to-peer workshop, top retailers from around the U.S. and Canada will share their inspiration, plans, hurdles, and how they pulled off their most successful events. You will leave with the plans and inspiration to implement similar events in your own garden center (workbook included) and will also have the opportunity to share your own ideas with other attendees. The cost of this workshop is $65 and you can visit  Cultivate18' Registration to learn more information and register for the workshop
