Every day during show hours, attendees may visit the Buyer’s Lounge on the seventh floor at 7 W for a free tutorial on the uses of Facebook and Twitter for business, and can ask questions to experts on social media who will be on hand.

The Norsig presentation will take place in the 7 W Event Suite. The retailer roundtable and speed-selling session will take place in the building’s 11th floor Event Space.
