Here are what people are saying about this conference:
  • “The format and pace of the presentation kept the day moving and informative. The audio-video programming was fun. Taking that walk back in time to 1998 for music, product costs etc. was fun and entertaining between breaks and sessions.”
  • “I felt immediately welcomed and got good content from it”
  • “Association involvement ensures inclusion and benefits to your company”
  • “Brad Worthley did an outstanding job. The information he presented was extremely valuable and relevant to our industry. His session created new ideas and motivation for change within our organization. We truly took home insights, ideas and information we could put into practice. The breakout sessions were great, as they allowed everyone to attend sessions that were relevant to their needs, as well as the ability to network with others and create new friendships among our peers. The food was probably the best I have experienced at any conference CXE³ or otherwise. The quality and presentation far exceeded my expectations.”

MSPA’s 4th Annual ShopperFest took place in Orlando, June 16-18, and was greatly successful. With nearly 100 Independent Contractors in attendance and just under 40 individuals representing provider companies, the opportunities for networking and growth were numerous!
Certification courses were also offered onsite which included two new certifications: Brand Standards Auditing and Banking & Financial Institutions. There were 103 certifications earned during the event! See photos and read comments on the IC Facebook page from those who attended—if you weren’t there, you definitely missed out!

Like Sonya Stewart said, “For someone who is completely new to the mystery shopping community, I cannot rave enough about the MSPA 2017 Conference. I happened across your website and figured I would go to see what it was all about and I'm happy I did. Everyone was so welcoming and patient. Tons of other shoppers gave me some great tips and suggestions. I can't wait for next year to go back!”
