Among IMC's plans are a new Gift + Home CEO Summit, which will target executives in the gift and home industries and offer content that focuses on relevant topics that influence and impact those industries.
Produced by both IMC and Eller Enterprises, the inaugural Gift + Home CEO Summit will take place the last two days of the winter market--Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, 2013. Already IMC has announced that Jon Huntsman, Jr., the former ambassador to China and former presidential contender, and Robert Reich, the former U.S. Secretary of Labor who has served under three administrations, including President Bill Clinton's, will be the featured keynote speakers for the first summit. They will each deliver a 30-minute speech, followed by a Q&A session led by Bob Maricich, CEO, IMC.
