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. Over $14,000,000 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
