The expo will occur at the Branson Convention Center in Branson,, from December 15 to 18. Severson said the location is “important,” noting the similarities between Branson owners and those in the .
“They’re very entrepreneurial. Very often, they end up working with family and close friends. So they have to work through all those samedecisions that we do as owners and entrepreneurs,” she said.
She also said that the location is beneficial becauseowners can personally learn from the successful entrepreneurs, picking up a thing or two during their visit.
“So one of the things that’s very different about this show is that we have opportunities to go behind the scenes to all these different venues and learn a little bit about how they were conceived—how they started, the way that they get guests into their venue, how they keep their family working together, how they choose and pick their staff, and create the loyalty that keeps some of those folks together for centuries,” the co-founder said.
Severson also noted that the show would beand engaging. Contrary to traditional expos, COE will be an entirely different experience for both vendors and owners.

Apart from an opportunity to make purchases, there is much to learn from the seminars. Vendors and members can also take advantage of Branson, which Severson considers “the place to be during Christmas.”
“We’re encouraging both of our vendors and our members to go ahead and make use of that and bring everybody together. We’re going to be going to shows and events together. It’s going to be an opportunity for the vendors and the families to mix,” said Severson.
Vendors also have something to look forward to at the December.
“They will have a wonderful space to be able to display in. It’s one of the largest convention centers I’ve ever worked with. And they’re very forgiving. So we have a lot of opportunities,” Severson shared.

Apart from companies sharing theirpractices, attendees also get to “hear from people who have made it” with the lineup of speakers.
