2. Make Appointments.
Scheduling appointments is the smartest start. It will help you optimize your time, and take a closer and more conscious look to all those trending styles. Having quality time can also create a connection between vendor and buyer that can make the difference while negotiating.
3. Be ready to negotiate.
First, try to connect on a personal level, done that, have in mind exactly what you want. Don’t be afraid to ask for a better deal, just remember that you may be more successful with larger quantities.
Try not to be in a hurry and speak with different vendors before making your decision.
4. Essentials Kit.
Yes, you will need one. Be sure to have comfortable shoes, a tote bag, a pen, your business cards, cell phone and charger. And of course, water and small snacks.
5. Be respectful.
Each vendor has its own requirements, some of them will only allow clients with a previous appointment, others won’t let you take pictures. Be polite and be sure to ask before.
Relax, enjoy and make the best of it! It is always exciting to meet and connect with new people. Besides, you will be in Las Vegas!
