Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) August 01, 2014

Over 20,000 entrepreneurs from around the world will descend upon North Carolina for the 2014 Market America | SHOP.COM International Convention at the Greensboro Coliseum on Aug. 7 – 10, 2014. The annual event will introduce new products, technology, programs and initiatives aimed at consumers converting their spending into earning, and also feature a who’s who of celebrities.

The event will feature the Market America | SHOP.COM Executive Team, successful entrepreneurs and celebrity guests. Previous events have been attended by Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Serena Williams, Alejandro Sanz, Khloe Kardashian, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Tony Romo, Swizz Beatz, Paulina Rubio and Marc Anthony, among many others.

At this event, Basketball Hall-of-Famer Scottie Pippen spotlight the impressive results of his Market America-branded product, Prime™ Joint Support by Isotonix®.

And at this event we are going to rev up the engines to a whole new level,” says Cartagena.
