Ace Hardware event kicks off in Orlando

Oak Brook, Ill.-based co-op Ace Hardware kicks off its three-day Fall Convention and Exhibits Tuesday morning with an early morning General Session at the Orange County Convention Center.  

The event organizers say they expect more than 5,000 Ace retailers from all 50 states and 73 countries to attend. 

In addition to buying and networking on the convention floor, the event’s retailer training sessions run the gamut from strategies to remove unproductive inventory to prevent shoplifting and to increase retail space productivity.

The event runs through Sept. 12.
