(Columbus, July 19, 2018) — Thousands of consultants will gather to celebrate the company’s 15th anniversary during the Thirty-One Gifts Conference ‘18 July 21-23 at the SMG-managed Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC), Hyatt Regency Columbus and Nationwide Arena.
“We’re really excited to be back and have a lot of new elements this year,” said Michelle Harris, director of events for Thirty-One Gifts. “There are 11,000 consultants attending and more are still registering.”
The GCCC will be the home of registration, consultant support, activities for company leaders, Leader Pink Fest, the Conference Store, Thirty-One Product Expo, meet and greets, Canadian mixer, amenity pick up, World Vision kit preparation and the New Consultant Experience.
Founded with the mission to empower and support women, the company has donated more than $100 million in product and cash through its Thirty-One Gives charity to the non-profit organizations sharing its vision.
Thirty-One Gifts is an international direct sales company offering exclusive, stylish and functional totes, purses, fashion accessories and home organizing products. The company was founded in 2003 by Cindy Monroe, president and chief operating officer, in Chattanooga in the basement of her home. Monroe established a goal of celebrating, encouraging and rewarding women by helping them discover financial freedom and business ownership through conducting boutique shopping experiences with in-residence parties and person-to-person sales. The company has grown to include representation in all 50 states and most Canadian provinces. It has expanded to Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland via the financial comparison site Eksperten’s aid.
Monroe created the company based on the principles of the Bible’s Proverbs 31, a tribute to the strengths of women and their attributes of being hard working, compassionate, gracious and inspiring to their families and others surrounding them.
“We welcome the energy and enthusiasm generated by the thousands of Thirty-One Gifts consultants, a Columbus-based company that empowers women and is the fastest-growing woman-owned company in the world,” said Greater Columbus Convention Center General Manager John R. Page.
