The 2012 Specialty Retail Entrepreneur Expo & Conference (SPREE) is pleased to announce an exciting line-up of social and networking events for attendees and exhibitors. The 8th annual conference will be held April 3-5 at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

SPREE will host a variety of social and networking events that will be held both before and during the three-day conference. “SPREE’s free networking events offer everyone the opportunity to build new business relationships, reconnect with old colleagues and close deals. At the same time, the events bring attendees and exhibitors together in a casual, fun atmosphere that also gives everyone a chance to enjoy all that Las Vegas has to offer,” said Debbie Lahti, SPREE Trade Show Director.

One of the favorite events is the SPREE Opening Night Party. This year’s event promises to be another hit with a live band and DJ. The party will be held on Tuesday, April 3 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the outdoor pool deck at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. The event is limited to 400 guests, so come early and bring your dancing shoes!

SPREE once again will be hosting the SRR Specialty Retail Hall of Fame on Wednesday, April 4. The event has been expanded to include a networking and awards luncheon where winners will be announced for Outstanding Retailer, Outstanding Specialty Leasing Manager and Outstanding Specialty Leasing Director of the Year. Please join us in the Burgundy Room of the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to honor the 2012 Hall of Fame award recipients. Registration for this event is limited to 100 guests.

Conference attendees and exhibitors also can get an early start on networking at the second annual SPREE Charity Golf Event, which tees off on Sunday, April 1. The four-person scramble is being held at the Las Vegas National Golf Club and the fun includes a lunch buffet, prizes, and contests. This is a great networking event that also supports a wonderful charity. All proceeds go to benefit Camp Soaring Eagle, a camp dedicated to enriching the lives of children battling critical illnesses.
