"NSRA Gives Back"Becoming a traditional part of this conference, NSRA and Soles4Souls join together for a community service event that provides hundreds of pairs of shoes to homeless men and women in the destination city's surrounding area. With generous participation from attending retailers and vendors, we are honored to be able provide such a rewarding shoe distribution experience.NSRA Education Conferences are a single day event, the day before FN PLATFORM Shoe Show at MAGIC Market Week, twice a year at the Las Vegas Convention Center. NSRA has partnered with FN PLATFORM, the largest shoe show in the United States, to
provide educational programming for independent footwear retailers. These Education Conferences are half-day programs, allowing
retailers to travel in the morning, network and sharpen their business skills
during the afternoon, and be ready for FN PLATFORM the next day.
