The Market America Convention 2017 is an annual event hosted by product broker and internet marketing powerhouse, Market America. This year’s extravagant show took place in the business capital of North Carolina, Greensboro. The week-long event was held between August 9-13, 2017, with its venue being the well known Greensboro Coliseum. While Market America stated that it expected at least 20,000 attendees, independent observers believe the event actually saw closer to 25,000 or more participants.
While it is a well-known fact that the internationally hosted event draws in big revenue for its host city, this year’s event likely broke all previous company records. Henri Fourrier, the highly regarded chief executive officer and president of the Greensboro City Convention and Visitors Bureau, estimated that this years event brought in $15.7 million dollars in revenue for Greensboro. With that kind of revenue, cities around the globe will be knocking on Market America’s door in an attempt to host the annual convention in 2018 and beyond.
What was so special about this year’s event, was that it marked the popular company’s 25th year anniversary. Market America planned the event for the entire calendar year and did everything they could to ensure that it topped every other event so far offered by the company. Market America’s chief operating officer, Marc Ashley, stated that “this event is going to be out of this world spectacular, as its the culmination of 25 years of successful business for brand. True to every word, the event eclipsed every event hosted in the past by the popular company.
