BrandSource to Host Women-in-Business Events
April 4, 2014,
TUSTIN, Calif.-BrandSource, the member-owned retailer merchandising group, will host BrandSource Women in Business events at its bi-annual conventions, which will give women in the home furnishings, appliance and electronics industries an ongoing platform to network, socialize, discuss important issues and share experiences.
These gatherings will be held on a twice-a-year basis, in March and August, at BrandSource's conventions. Judy Lawrence, an industry expert who is spearheading these events, said the first event, held last month at the Spring Summit in Orlando, Fla., drew more than 40 attendees. Lawrence said the idea for the group arose from the Consumer Electronics Association's annual Women in CE events at the International CES trade show.
