Former Ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman, Jr., and former U.S. Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, will be featured keynote speakers at International Market Centers' inaugural Gift+Home CEO Summit at the Las Vegas Market in January 2013. Drawing on extensive experience on the world stage, Huntsman and Reich will address issues such as geopolitics, labor and currency, which are impacting and influencing gift and home industry businesses today.
Both keynote sessions will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers (IMC). The two-day conference also will present a series of breakout sessions, panel discussions and other topical presentations, with all content geared towards CEOs, presidents and owners of gift and home businesses. Co-produced by International Market Centers (IMC) and Eller Enterprises, the event will take place January 31-February 1, 2013, during the Winter 2013 market.
“No other industry conference or marketplace offers industry leaders exposure to U.S. economic strategists and thought leaders of this caliber,” said conference organizer Randy Eller, president of Eller Enterprises. “These men, who have served presidents and influenced international policy, will offer exclusive insights into the issues and opportunities our industry faces today and into the future.”
