I think The SMART Show is the perfect blend of education and buying opportunities. I loved the new buyers incentive program and plan to increase my purchases next year because of it.

I always love coming to Chicago each year for The SMART Show. We are able to meet with many of our existing vendors and to make a lot of new friends. I can't wait till next year.
