Customers are your business and most buying decisions take place in the emotional center of the customer’s brain. Sponsored by ASA, the upcoming Showroom Managers Networking Council program will show you how to grow and retain your customer base by employing a variety of strategies, including the Kano model. Develop and orchestrate the kind of customer experience that inspires lifelong loyalties — and makes word-of-mouth you’re least expensive but most powerful marketing tool. Attendees also will discover fascinating ways to appeal directly to these emotions in your showroom by tweaking your surroundings. Learn how to maximize showroom ambiance and product displays to transform the average showroom into a formidable selling system. Held during Design & Construction Week, this event is a must-attend session. Register at
