FW: Save The Date - Entrepreneur Tour to Dallas

Sorry for the late notice about this trip, but I think many Oklahoma communities might find this Extension program VERY worthwhile. It’s a 2-day, 1-night trip to Dallas featuring tours of the Dallas Market Center (with opportunities for business owners to register as a vendor!) and Neiman Marcus (with an emphasis on visual merchandising and window displays), as well as opportunities to shop for fixtures and merchandise for participants’ stores back home. One the bus ride down and back, we’ll have “Workshops on the Move” – educational opportunities addressing various aspects of retail business ownership (see the list of topics below).

The deadline for registration is this Friday, though I’m confident that if any business owners want to attend we can work with them regarding registration.
