Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
CAMEX 2018 - Campus Market Expo
Produced and hosted by the National Association of College Stores (NACS), CAMEX is campus retailing’s largest educational conference and buying expo, attracting nearly 1,800 qualified buyers from almost 1,000 campus stores from the U.S., Canada, and beyond.
