|Wholesalecrafts.com, producers of the American Craft Retailers Expo (ACRE) shows, announces its reservation to host the Museum Store Association (MSA) Florida Chapter annual meeting at its second annual ACRE Orlando show, January 21 – 23, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center. Returning for their second year in a row, the MSA Florida Chapter will be conducting their annual meeting onsite during the show, offering its attendees the opportunity to wholesale shop at ACRE Orlando as well as the Orlando Gift Show including Orlando Cash & Carry Show. Both shows are running cooperatively and concurrently in the same hall.
“The folks at ACRE Orlando were so accommodating last year,” said Terry Aulisio, President MSA Florida Chapter and Retail & Visitor Services Manager, Museum Store Buyer at the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, FL. “It was an obvious choice to hold our annual meeting here once again. Orlando was already a convenient place for us to meet and take care of business needs, but now we can also do some of our winter shopping at the same time.”
“We are thrilled to have the MSA Florida Chapter back with us for a second year at ACRE Orlando,” said Nancy Vince, President, Wholesalecrafts.com, Inc. “It’s a nice perk for our exhibitors and a great place for these buyers to meet and network with other retailers. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.”
