fill me in - what's YPU?

YPU is geared toward young, professional individuals - just like you. think vendor presentations, roundtable sessions on hot topics that affect YPs, workshops, team-building activities and plenty of networking events.
wanna hear the best part? YPU is sponsored by our lovely vendors, meaning your flight is covered (up to $350), along with your hotel and meals. we're talkin' as free as the good ole' U.S. of A. we want people who may never get to attend the shows or region meetings to snag a seat at the cool kids' table and hear from peeps within the industry. Limit (2) attendees per AVB ID.
we’ve had many retailers come to us and say, “I planned on passing down my business to my children when I retire, but they came home from college and have ZERO interest in this industry. they don’t find it interesting and don’t see how it can be successful.”
we get it - maybe some of you want to do your own thing. the truth is this industry is thriving and we want to help you make a profit by working hard (but not too hard) and learning some trade secrets. YPU is about learning from each other and building a network of ideas and marketing strategies to keep customers coming in your door. team work makes the dream work, ya know?
sounds awesome, right? We think so, and we hope you're just as excited as we are! Let the countdown begin!
