Our Convention

Overview

Every June, in a different US city, Learning Express Toys hosts a franchise-wide Convention. All store owners look forward to Convention each year, because the information and connections they gain are invaluable. Convention is a wonderful time for store owners to socialize with one another and share their experiences from the past year as well as connect with the corporate office employees and vendors. Millions of dollars in orders are written at the convention each year, and more than 100 vendors are represented.

Convention offers franchisees the opportunity to:
• Share experiences with their fellow store owners and managers
• Connect with Home Office staff face-to-face
• Take part in professional development workshops
• Listen to speakers from the toy industry
• Meet vendors face-to-face and check out new products at the Vendor Expo
• Place orders for the critical fourth-quarter holiday season with special vendor terms
