Last week swapping enthusiasts converged onto the Phoenix Marriott Mesa Hotel & Convention Center for the annual convention of the National Association of Trade Exchanges, a group devoted to helping people swap goods and services.
Over 700 business attended the event who swapped their merchandise and services with other attendees without using money. Attendees swapped all types of items ranging small goods like eyeglasses to the larger services like a ride in a fighter jet.
Local events like this can really take swapping to the next level, allowing anyone to walk away with exactly what they want and cutting down on other costs like shipping and packaging. Best of all – when you swap you’re often able to find incredible deals, obtaining things you want for a fraction of their retail price!
