SAN DIEGO, Jan. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading social selling apparel business CAbi is calling the city of San Diego home this weekend as more than 3,500 women from around the country descend upon the city for The Scoop, CAbi's semi-annual event featuring a fashion show, collection launch and in-depth business training.
CAbi is a designer women's clothing collection that is sold exclusively by its unique network of independent Consultants through private, in-home trunk shows. The Scoop brings together CAbi's expansive network of female entrepreneurs, called Consultants, to celebrate the accomplishments of the past season and introduce the newest Spring 2015 Collection. To prepare for Spring 2015, Consultants will attend sessions focused on building their business, delivering the CAbi experience, leadership development and team building.
The highly-anticipated three-day event took over the San Diego Convention Center, bringing in an estimated $8 million in business to the area through lodging, dining and transportation. CAbi plans to host The Scoop annually in San Diego until 2020, with the exception of 2019.
Launched in 2002, CAbi (Carol Anderson by invitation) is a designer women's clothing collection and the nation's largest social-selling apparel company. The brand has since become known for its unparalleled quality provided through a unique shopping experience, and network of national CAbi Consultants who form a tight-knit community of collaboration. After spending 25 years selling her collections in department stores, such as Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and specialty boutiques across the country, women's apparel designer, Carol Anderson, and her husband, Jan Janura, partnered with now President, Kimberly Inskeep, and 10 additional women (known as Co-Founders), and they launched CAbi in an effort to maintain Carol's creative freedom, bring her loyal following of customers into a new shopping experience filled with style and ideas, and give women an opportunity to be entrepreneurs in a career that affords them a lucrative income, flexibility of lifestyle, and rich relationships with like-minded women. With a firm foundation of success, and a new visionary CEO, Lynne Coté, CAbi is poised to spread their creed "affecting lives through relationship" even further — transforming the lives of women across the globe.
In addition to "affecting lives through relationships" (the company's creed) through the business, The Heart of CAbi Foundation extends this powerful idea through affecting the lives of women in need around the world. Over $40 million in CAbi clothing and financial contributions have been donated through CAbi's domestic and international non-profit partners who share the company's mission of impacting the lives of those in need.
Simply put, CAbi is a designer clothing Collection sold in a relaxed home environment by a trained fashion Consultant. But as any Consultant will tell you, CAbi offers so much more than clothes. Imagine setting your own hours, fostering rich relationships, and calling your own shots! CAbi is all about giving women their lives back and enabling them to put first things first … all while building a truly sustainable career. Whether you're a style novice or fashion maven, a stay-at-home-mom, or a high-powered exec looking to leave the grind behind, you can find success and limitless earning potential with CAbi, because of their simple, balanced, and real Career Opportunity. With CAbi, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
