What is KnowledgeFest?
KnowledgeFest was founded in 1994 by a group of passionate specialty retailers and reps in the Midwest who saw the value in mobile electronics retailers getting together to share knowledge and experiences. In sharing successes and failures, all participants become better, smarter and more profitable business people. Since that time, KnowledgeFest has grown into a full trade show and educational conference like no other in our industry.
 
What's in it for me?
Today, KnowledgeFest events include over 18 educational workshops, 50 manufacturer trainings, great networking opportunities, and: a Mobile Electronics Show floor featuring manufacturer and benefit provider exhibits and displays. Talk one-on-one with people with which you do business (or should be!). Every major manufacturer and many specialty manufacturers will be there for you. 
 
Over 40 hours of manufacturer training sessions are designed to make you the expert in your market. Specialized training for owner/managers, sales professionals and installation techs to keep your business on the cutting edge of profitability. Whether you're a seasoned veteran, or a relative newcomer to mobile electronics, KnowledgeFest has something for you.
 
What will I learn?
KnowledgeFest events will speak to the issues that retailers have told us are important for managing and growing their business. For example, topics like controlling expenses, maximizing cash flow and finding new ways to compete in this challenging economy. Learn the best ways for improving business relationships with manufacturers and reps, find out how to deal with connectivity issues and the defective dilemma and make the right decisions for marketing and advertising to today's consumer. Find the most effective ways to make the Internet your friend and realize areas for potential growth that you may not have considered.
