Upcoming AFFTA Dealer Summit



Angling Trade is pleased to be a sponsor of the upcoming AFFTA Dealer Summit to be held in Bozeman, Montana, October 12-15.  Now in its second year, this growing event is specifically designed to address the issues and concerns of specialty retailers in the fly-fishing business.  It features a unique lineup of seminars and roundtable discussions that help dealers get more from their businesses.  According to many who attended last year, it was an extremely worthwhile experience, and this year promises to be the same.

Click here to see the full agenda, but one of the keystone sessions will be Wednesday October 14 when Dan Mann talks about “Delivering the Ideal In-Store Experience.”

“The Mann Group is convinced that consumer engagement starts with the Owner.  Once you have hired your employees, you MUST influence them to provide the type of engagement that your brand promises.  You can directly influence staff opinion that directly influences the customers that visit your store.”
