Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG), the $11 billion buying organization for independent dealers, has opened registration for its next convention and buying show.
The group's PrimeTime! event will be held March 8-11 at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans under the theme "Take Charge: Tactics, Trends and Savings."
NMG said its vendor partners will offer "millions of dollars in savings" on top-brand merchandise through the group's CashBack Now program and special show offers.
The "Take Charge" theme will be reflected in convention seminars, which will focus on tactics members can employ to remain profitable. Industry leaders and the NMG leadership team will also present timely reports on the latest financial and product trends, the group said.
"We will be challenging our member dealers to take charge of their businesses, their finances [and] their futures by strategically utilizing the benefits that their membership provides," said Robert Weisner, NMG's executive VP.
