The Edge and The Edge Retail Academy has selected Turnberry Isle Miami Resort for their 2-day intensive retail education program. The Edge programs will cover planning for profitability, inventory, staffing, customer management strategies, measuring results, tools and tactics for increasing store traffic, and more. Classes will take place on Friday, August 24 and Saturday, August 25. The cost to attend the 2-day program is $495 per person.
“This year, we are delighted that The Edge and The Edge Retail Academy have decided to produce their 2-day program just prior to Prime,” states Prime Jewelry Group President, John Preziose. “This intensive educational seminar provides jewelers with tools to increase profitability, manage their business and helps them plan a customized ‘open to buy’ at Prime.”
Attendees coming to The Edge program can take advantage of Prime’s special negotiated resort rate of $125 per night. Plus all retailers attending The Edge seminars will receive personalized help in preparing their ‘open to buy’ to fit with their overall sales and profit objectives. All retailers attending The Edge program are invited to make a reservation to attend Prime, which begins with a cocktail party on Saturday, August 25, with the exhibit floor open on Sunday and Monday, August 26-27, immediately following the Edge Retail Academy’s program.
Retailers can select from three different participation levels at Prime, based on their buying commitment, and are rewarded with free airfare, hotel nights, meals, a relaxed buying atmosphere and an opportunity to spend more time with participating Prime Members to explore marketing opportunities and other programs. Higher levels of buying earn higher rewards, including additional nights at the resort. While there is no cost to attend Prime, all attendees must qualify for admission and reservations are recommended.
