Co-produced by International Market Centers (IMC) and Eller Enterprises, this first-of-its kind executive-level summit will run concurrently with GIFT+HOME at Las Vegas Market from January 31- February 1, 2013, at World Market Center Las Vegas.
“We invite CEO’s, presidents and owners of gift and home décor manufacturing companies to come together for two days of discussion and insight into the critical issues facing our industry and its leaders today,” said conference organizer Randy Eller, president of Eller Enterprises.
The registration fee includes two full days of programming, including keynote addresses by Jon Huntsman, Jr., former Ambassador to China, and Robert Reich, economists, as well as an address from Claire Shipman, best-selling author and senior contributor for ABC News. Additional panel discussions and presentations will cover topics such as the effects of China’s economy and the European economic crisis; preparing a company for sale and exit strategies; building corporate culture; and other issues impacting the U.S. gift and home marketplace.
In addition to registration, the CEO Summit website – giftandhomelv.com/ceosummit – provides a complete schedule for the two-day event, as well as a calendar of market events, a listing of on-site amenities and hotel and travel information.
Las Vegas Market features thousands of furniture, gift and home décor lines, allowing for cross-category commerce among the gift, furniture, home décor and accessory industries. The Winter 2013 Las Vegas Market runs January 28-February 1, 2013, at the World Market Center.
