Fort Wayne, Ind. — After a successful 2022 spring market, do it better is moving forward with a revamped approach for its Spring 2023 market that brings together the best of online and in-person market experiences in a new way.
“Over the past two years, we’ve had many opportunities to talk to our members and vendors about what they value most in a market experience,” said Dan Starr, President and CEO of Do it. Best. “What came through loud and clear was how important it is for people to come together. We have always offered this in our markets and we will continue to do so. But, just as we encourage our members to regularly refresh their stores to excite their customers, we’ve reimagined a spring market that offers something different and valuable for our members and vendors. I’m happy to share that starting next year, Do it Best will be moving its spring market out of its traditional Indianapolis home and taking it on the road to various locations across the country, starting in Orlando, in Florida, March 11-13, 2023.”
The redesigned Spring Market will be built to facilitate product purchasing and member networking and engagement. “The virtual element of the marketplace will continue to offer the full suite of vendor products and marketplace specials that our member-owners rely on,” said Vice President of Marketing, Rich Lynch. “The in-person portion will showcase the bargains in the market, supported by vendors ready to show and talk about what’s new. Attractions like the New Item Gallery and Launch Zone will feature even more new products to build excitement in-store and online. In addition, our members will have several opportunities to participate in great sessions to fuel their sales engines. The networking and planned social events will help everyone come away recharged for the busy spring season.
While this is a notable change for the Spring Markets, Do it Best will continue to host its Fall Market in Indianapolis, including the Annual Meeting of Shareholders, President’s Address, and Handouts. discounts.
