It's about traveling together.
Transition is a complicated and personal process. No one should have to walk that path without fellow travelers every step of the way. As a seller and service provider, you travel the path with your customers and are a unique part of and witness to their transition, whatever that looks like for them. Trans Turning Point is about bringing you closer to your community, and it's about connecting you with valued referrals and resources.
We are passionate about bringing businesses together because we know how it feels to be with someone in transition, even if it's just one interaction for a massage or a garment fitting. It is intensely rewarding to be part of that journey, to travel together.
Thank you for the work you do and for your participation in this event.
