Greensboro, N.C. (Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022) — From Feb. 24 through Feb. 26, thousands of entrepreneurs from around the world will experience Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM’s annual World Conference (#MAWC2022) in-person at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida or online. Following current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines as well as state and local guidelines, this year’s World Conference will be held as a hybrid event, allowing entrepreneurs from around the world to experience the next chapter of business innovation from wherever they are most comfortable.
This year’s World Conference brings with it the introduction of groundbreaking business-building tools and on-trend and relevant Market America–exclusive products, all to help the company’s distributors, known as UnFranchise® Owners (UFOs), grow their own home-based businesses that can provide them with a supplemental income.** Further, a spectacular tribute celebrating the extraordinary life of Dennis Franks —Executive Vice President of Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM, Philadelphia Eagles Special Teams Captain, musician, husband, father and grandfather — will be an integral part of the entire three-day event, connecting business success with one of Franks’ most meaningful sayings: “Stay Focused and Stay the Course.”
Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM Founder, Chairman & CEO JR Ridinger lights up the stage as well as thousands of attendees at #MAIC2021.
“Without question, the last couple of years have given us all a run for our money,” said JR Ridinger, Founder, Chairman & CEO of Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM. “From annoying inconveniences to heartbreaking tragedies, each of us has been touched in some unforeseen or incomprehensible way. Recent experiences may have you feeling stuck or lackluster. There is nothing wrong with taking a moment to reflect and reevaluate, as long as you remember to keep moving forward. You must continue to do the hard work. We all must. As our beloved Dennis Franks would say, we must stay focused and stay the course. But what does this truly mean and how did Dennis help us transform these words into powerful business building blocks of success? At this year’s World Conference, we’re going to get personal. We are going to provide the next-level tools, training and technology to help direct you toward a business that can lead to a supplemental income.”**
The continued success of the Shopping Annuity® and the UnFranchise Business — the company’s signature program and Ridinger’s brainchild that helps smart shoppers to convert money they already spend on everyday purchases into supplemental income — will be the primary focus at World Conference.** Ridinger will share what UFOs can expect the next chapter of their UnFranchise Businesses to look like. Additionally, #MAWC2022 attendees will get an exclusive first look at some of the hottest new and exclusive Market America products launching throughout 2022.
