Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 02, 2013

Market America/SHOP.COM is no stranger to global initiatives, but its latest foray is by far its most impressive.

The One-to-One Marketing Company and Internet Retailer announced an array of programs aimed at drawing customers and prospective entrepreneurs from around the world.

“This event set the stage for the largest global expansion our company has ever undertaken,” said President and Chief Executive Officer JR Ridinger. “There is no better time to be part of the Market America family than now.”

Market America/SHOP.COM 2013 World Conference, held January 31 through February 1 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL, featured the Market America Executive Team, successful entrepreneurs and celebrity guests.

This year, NBA all-star Carmelo Anthony appeared via satellite to discuss his partnership with Market America regarding Isotonix® Champion Blend Plus, the latest offering in the company’s advanced health & nutrition supplement line. Television star La La Anthony and basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen were on hand to talk about their respective Market America-branded products, Motives for La La and Prime Joint Support Formula by Isotonix.

Previous Market America events have been attended by the likes of Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Serena Williams, Alejandro Sanz, Khloe Kardashian-Odom, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Tony Romo, Swizz Beatz, Paulina Rubio, and Marc Anthony, among many others.

Market America and SHOP.COM surprised the audience with a grand finale performance by one of the most renowned Latin artists worldwide and winner of 16 Latin Grammys and three Grammys, Alejandro Sanz. Sanz’s performance captivated the audience and was an unexpected and exciting closure to Friday’s program. Beginning in February, Sanz will recommence his international tour visiting Lima, Montevideo, Rosario, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo among many other international cities with his tour " La música no se toca"

In addition to its international announcements, Market America/SHOP.COM 2013 World Conference featured numerous new product launches from its wide assortment of health & nutrition and beauty and personal care brands.

“Watercolors,” the Spring/Summer 2013 collection from the award-winning Motives by Loren Ridinger cosmetics line created by Market America/SHOP.COM Senior Vice President Loren Ridinger, was also unveiled. Following the hottest color trends for the season, “Watercolors” will be available for both the Motives and Motives for La La brands.

Loren Ridinger and La La Anthony also discussed the first-ever Motives Pop-Up Shop held in an Atlanta beauty salon recently, which received rave reviews from more than 1,000 attendees and nationwide media attention. Based on its overwhelming success, Loren and La La detailed how this unique experience – which connected new customers to the Motives and Motives for La La brands, and allowed them to see the products up close and personal in a casual atmosphere – will become a model for Motives Beauty Advisors across the country to emulate and grow their Motives businesses.

The company also launched Lumiere de Vie, the highly-anticipated skincare line from beauty and fashion expert Amber Ridinger. This new brand, which will be available exclusively at SHOP.COM, is the next generation of skincare aimed at helping and preventing skin issues for individuals of all ages and skin types.

The company’s weight loss division, TLS Weight Loss Solution, awarded more than $30,000 in cash prizes to the winners of its TLS Find Your Fit Fall 2012 Challenge, a 12-week contest that saw more than 2,000 people take part for the chance to “Lose to Win.” TLS also debuted its Spring Challenge that will award a total of $75,000 to the winners.

Already in seven markets around the world – the United States, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and Mexico – the company has set its sights on making its dynamic business model even more global. At this event, the company outlined how it is taking its robust entrepreneurial platform into Spain, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic. This effort will make the company’s UnFranchise Business model available to millions of Latino entrepreneurs in the company’s largest expansion in its history.

The company also announced its newest website, http://www.global.shop.com, through which consumers in over 200 countries will, for the first time, have access to Market America brands. This initiative is in response to the growing worldwide demand for the company’s products.

“We are thrilled to now have a gateway for nearly the entire world to have access to our exclusive health & nutrition, beauty and personal care, home good products, and so much more. And to be able to make our business model available to so many Latino entrepreneurs is a dream many years in the making. There is so much to be excited about right now,” Loren Ridinger said.

In conjunction with its international expansion effort, the company conducted two free business introductions for entrepreneurs on Friday. These sessions were geared to individuals interested in learning how the company’s advanced technology is combined with online shopping to form the most robust entrepreneurial platform on the market with the potential to help anyone achieve their personal financial goals.
