Educational Seminars

For a number of years, AETA has been a strong proponent about offering educational opportunities for retailers, manufacturers/distributors and sales reps to help with their businesses. The topics covered have included: merchandising, marketing & promotion, social media, inventory control, effective selling, etc. From actual seminar presentations by industry leaders to the most recent roundtable discussions chaired by peers in each category, education has been accessible to both members and non-members attending the AETA trade shows.
