Forbes publisher will serve as keynote speaker
Bedding retailers are encouraged to attend the 2015 ISPA Industry Conference March 4-5 at the Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Golf Club in St. Petersburg, Florida. The conference is sponsored by the International Sleep Products Association. The Better Sleep Council is the consumer-education arm of ISPA.
Entrepreneur-turned-publisher, columnist, author, television commentator and board director Rich Karlgaard will be guest speaker. Karlgaard is the publisher of Forbes magazine, for which he writes a biweekly business column. He has a unique vantage point on the trends driving the business and investment climates, and his insights help audiences gain new perspectives on the global marketplace.
In his latest book, The Soft Edge: Where Great Companies Find Lasting Success, Karlgaard shares a surprising third element—in addition to high performance and superb execution—that’s required to gain the competitive advantage.
The conference also will include a gala dinner and recognition of industry leaders, a golf outing, workshops and networking opportunities.
Registration for ISPA’s Industry Conference opens Oct. 15. Visit www.ISPAIndustryConference.com for more information and to register.
