At-Market Programming in Las Vegas

A second, in-person session will be held on Aug. 10, prior to Formal Markets Las Vegas on Aug. 11 – 13 at the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas.

“The April in-person Mon Cheri Academy was highly attended with retailers who are focused on expanding their knowledge and growing their businesses,” said Steve Lang, CEO of Mon Cheri Bridals. “Mon Cheri Academy’s virtual sessions are a great start for retailers, but to get the full impact of these educational sessions, they must come in-person to Las Vegas in August to immerse themselves in the market landscape and learn how to apply all of their virtual learnings before starting their buying.”

Registration for the August at-market session is available at
