MIAMI, Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "Converting Spending Into Earning" (a/k/a The Shopping Annuity) is the main message Market America|SHOP.COM will deliver to more than 25,000 eager entrepreneurs at its 2017 World Conference. This year's event, to be held Feb 9-11 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL, will showcase the latest developments in Market America|SHOP.COM's high-tech, high-touch approach to retailing. Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine will welcome attendees to this year's event and acknowledge the positive impact that Market America|SHOP.COM entrepreneurs have had on the local community.
"We couldn't be more excited about our World Conference this year in Miami," said Market America|SHOP.COM Chairman and CEO JR Ridinger. "People everywhere are succeeding more and more rapidly through the Market America UnFranchise® business. The pace continues to quicken as entrepreneurs enthusiastically adopt our "Shopping Annuity" concept which includes analyzing consumer spending habits with our online tools, using SHOP.COM's comparison shopping engine to find the best prices and earning up to 50% Cashback on qualifying purchases," he said. "This event will be our most historic event ever as we disclose new technologies, new products, new methodologies and new opportunities that will allow the world to Convert Their Spending Into Earning."
Ridinger continued, "There is a lot of buzz about the Shopping Annuity program, which works similar to a financial annuity but is not funded by one's existing income or investment; rather, it is based on digital aggregation and collective buying power and funded by one's existing everyday spending rather than income. It rewards consumers through earning cashback while saving them money on such purchases. The real attraction is that it tracks all of their shopping and spending and accumulates in an account that pays them a return at accumulated volume thresholds. The result is that spent money essentially works like money in the bank. Better yet, it tracks not only what they spend from shopping on SHOP.COM but also tracks their footprint as viral peer influencers and credits the purchases of others toward their own Shopping Annuity."
The event will feature the Market America|SHOP.COM executive team, successful entrepreneurs and celebrity guests, including Fat Joe, La La Anthony and Scottie Pippen. Previous events have been attended by Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, Serena Williams, Alejandro Sanz, Khloe Kardashian, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Tony Romo, Swizz Beatz, Paulina Rubio and Marc Anthony, among many others.
Grammy-nominated rap artist and entrepreneur Joseph "Fat Joe" Cartagena, the company's President of Urban and Latino Development, will be on hand to convey the excitement and explosive growth within that market sector. He will discuss Market America | SHOP.COM's core value of living a life that is "All the Way Up." Following Joe's speech he will perform his hit Grammy-nominated single, "All the Way Up," featuring Remy Ma and French Montana, as well as his No. 1 Billboard hit "Lean Back."
New products will be unveiled from the Spring/Summer 2017 makeup collection from the award-winning Motives by Loren Ridinger cosmetics line created by Market America|SHOP.COM Senior Executive Vice President Loren Ridinger. In addition to line expansions for the Motives brand, the new, hot color trends for the fall/winter season will be available on SHOP.COM and motivescosmetics.com immediately following their unveiling at the event. On Saturday, February 11th, Loren will deliver a powerful presentation called "How To Create Your Ideal Life" which will harness her inimitable passion for helping others to reach their goals, succeed and live The American Dream.
Loren's collaboration with actress/entrepreneur La La Anthony (who happens to be the wife of NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony) in the creation of Motives for La La has brought beauty in every shade across the world and has received worldwide media attention. Anthony will be on hand to showcase the latest developments with the line and discuss "How To Successfully Sell Motives."
"The growth and success of Motives is truly gratifying," said Loren Ridinger. "Through social media we have been able to combine our passion and beauty expertise in order to best serve our customers' needs."
The company will announce several enhancements to SHOP.COM mobile including the addition of SHOP Local, PayPal and Apple Pay, as well as some great new user-friendly enhancements to make the user experience even better.
"Our mobile suite of products is centered around creating the best user experience possible through an easy-to-use interface, fast checkouts and blazing speed, among other things," said Steve Ashley, President & COO of SHOP.COM. "SHOP.COM is equipped with the best mobile products in the online retail space."
After debuting over a year ago, another of the company's hottest product lines — DNA Miracles™ and DNA Miracles Natural, created by Amber Ridinger-McLaughlin and Duane McLaughlin — will unveil several new additions to the DNA Miracles Line. Products include: DNA Miracles Natural Kids Shampoo + Body Wash, DNA Miracles Natural Kids Conditioner, DNA Miracles Natural Kids Bubble Bath, DNA Miracles Natural Kids Detangler and DNA Miracles Natural Kids Lotion.
Furthermore, NBA Hall-of-Famer Scottie Pippen will be on hand to spotlight the impressive results and success of his Market America-exclusive product, Prime™ Joint Support by Isotonix®.
During this year's event, attendees will be treated to a special video announcement from renowned entrepreneur, investor, television personality (Shark Tank), author and motivational speaker, Daymond John, whose involvement with Market America|SHOP.COM stems from a multi-year relationship with founders JR and Loren Ridinger. Daymond will formally announce the launch of "The Daymond John Collection" on SHOP.COM with President & COO Marc Ashley onstage.
Additional exciting new announcements will headline this year's event, including enhancements to SHOP.COM's shopping website that will be introduced and discussed in detail by Market America|SHOP.COM President & COO Marc Ashley.
