Hanover, Mass. – Since its inception six years ago, the Specialty Retail Entrepreneur Expo & Conference (SPREE) has been a popular trade show for international specialty retailers and business opportunities. However, this year SPREE–which takes place April 12-14, 2011 at The Sands Expo Center at the Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada–will add a global focus by offering special seminars, international speakers and trade representatives to help specialty retailers explore opportunities to expand their businesses worldwide.

SPREE will feature an International Pavilion that will include shopping center location opportunities from around the world. The show is also introducing seminars and expert panels on breaking into the Canadian market and understanding import/export guidelines. Also available will be representatives from the Canadian consulate and the U.S. Department of Commerce to talk about the Canadian market and the legalities of opening and doing business in Canada as well as the opportunities that exist for specialty retail in Canada.

“The world is getting smaller and smaller and now specialty retail is in shopping centers across the globe – from Dubai, Moscow, France, the UK, and beyond. SPREE 2011′s global emphasis will be the focus of the future in this industry.” says Deborah S. Kravitz, Principal, Provenzano Resources, Inc. and the moderator of the “Understanding the Global Specialty Retail Market” seminar. Her seminar will include a panel of experts from the U.S. and Europe and will discuss how specialty retail trends differ around the globe.

A Global Market panel will feature international experts including experts from Britain to discuss worldwide business trends and specialty retail opportunities that exist worldwide. There is no cost for attendees to attend SPREE or any of its seminar programs.

In addition to seminars, panels and the International Pavilion, SPREE will also feature seminar sessions in Hebrew and seminar handouts printed in multiple languages; the International Pavilion will feature opportunities to gather information on retail opportunities in Europe, the UAE, South America and Russia.
