Learning Express Finalizes Locations for 2020 & 2021 Conventions

Mike Derse Convention, Franchising

DEVENS, Massachusetts. Learning Express Toys hosts their 23rd Annual Convention and Vendor Expo June 22-25, 2020 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel in Schaumburg, IL. The 24th Annual Convention will be held at The Diplomat Beach Resort Hollywood, Curio Collection by Hilton in Hollywood, FL from June 27-30, 2021.

Every June, in a different US city, Learning Express Toys hosts a franchise-wide Convention. 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 each other and share their experiences from the past year. It’s also an opportunity for franchisees to connect with the corporate office support team 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
