WFIA's Connect event offers you the opportunity to meet with local retailers via a speed networking event. Due to the most recent update from Governor Inslee, WFIA is hosting a virtual 2021 Connect: Vendor-2-Retailer event.
Contact Melissa Burgess with questions.
An amazing day full of celebration and connection of everything that makes our industry unique.
The event starts with a speed networking session between retailers and a select group of featured vendors. A reception with silent auction follows and allows vendors who were not featured in the speed networking session to have the opportunity to meet with retailers prior to the start of dinner.
Closing out the event is our Industry Awards Dinner. The dinner is full of several exciting components including a speaker presentation, a live auction offering "Connect" packages with CEOs and buyers from prominent retail establishments, and the presentation of our Industry Awards.
We apologize, but the 2021 Feature Vendor application process is now closed. Please check back in November 2021 for our next selection process for the 2022 Connect event.
