Handmade for Retail (in-person) AVL

The workshop is designed for entrepreneurs who want to:
• Sustainably grow their business through retail channels.
• Optimize communication with retailers, including crafting a pitch message and maintaining a positive relationship
• Sell more to current stockists and entice more stockists to carry their products.
• Improve product packaging so that retailers can sell their products with ease.
• Make their wares more consistent (and why it’s so important to do so).
• Create cleaner invoices and set up payment processes that get them paid faster.

This workshop is ideal for:
• Small-scale product manufacturing businesses or solo-entrepreneurs that make handmade wares.
• Makers that want to grow their business through retail channels.
• Third-party distributors of handmade products.
• Artists and makers that are thinking about starting a business and selling their products into retail stores 

All sessions are limited capacity, first come first serve. You can create an agenda within the event platform of sessions you want to attend but this does not guarantee you a seat at every session.
