Published: February 27, 2012

The annual National Retail Hobby Stores Association Table Top Expo will be April 29-May 2 at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev.

In addition to the Table Top Expo, there will be numerous dealer education seminars. Retail expert and speaker Bob Negen will run his Whiz Bang Dealer Boot Camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 29. He promises the “tools, tactics and techniques to turbo” and is offering a “Better-than-money-back guarantee” that attendees will feel “totally confident” they’ll be able to increase their sales by $25,000 in the next year.

Business motivational speaker Jim Mathis will deliver the event’s keynote address on Monday and host a seminar. Other educational opportunities include meetings on running a successful R/C service department, and estate planning and asset protection. Lionel, MRC and Traxxas are scheduled to give manufacturer seminars. The NRHSA membership meeting/Dealer-to-Dealer Seminar will be Monday afternoon.

The show will open Tuesday afternoon and run through Wednesday.

Attendees will have chances to see R/C products in action with indoor and outdoor flying demonstrations and a driving session.

Of course, a trip to Vegas is never all work. Entertainment events include a golf outing on Sunday, a bowling “tournament” on Monday and the “Party by the Pool” Tuesday night.
