NSRA Conferences
Share |

NSRA hosts conferences that focus on changing aspects of independent footwear retailing to help shape your business future. Designed to refresh and revitalize enthusiasm for retailing success, attending our events is a rewarding experience for retailers committed to effective business leadership.
NSRA Education Conferences are held 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 half-day programs, allow retailers to travel in the morning, network and sharpen their business skills during the afternoon, and be ready for FN PLATFORM  the next day.
Registration for this event is complimentary for anyone attending the show.

Next Education Conference Sunday, August 13th.
Details to be announced when available.
