Greensboro, N.C. (Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2022) - From Aug. 11 to Aug. 14, thousands of entrepreneurs from around the world experienced Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM's annual International Convention (#MAIC2022) in person at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex in North Carolina. This year's International Convention celebrated 30 years of global business success. This business started from humble beginnings in the home of a Greensboro family and has grown into an award-winning global e-commerce company with offices in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

"The best thing about this business is the fact that we're always here for each other, support one another, and thrive off our teamwork and mutual respect," said Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM Founder, Chairman & CEO, JR Ridinger. "We excel through cooperation rather than competition and give people a new path to success and stability. Our business is the real American dream, where people from all walks of life come together to build something better for everyone. We're unified in our purpose and passion for helping everyone achieve the lifestyle and freedom they deserve."

Thousands of current and new distributors, known as UnFranchise® Owners (UFOs), packed the Coliseum to hear the Corporate team, special guests and top UFOs stroll down memory lane while sharing the new products, technology and training that will help jumpstart the next 30+ years of business advancement.

"The past 30 years have been an utterly remarkable journey of personal and professional growth for all of us - and the next 30 years are going to be even better, as a new generation of entrepreneurs learn to build and grow their own businesses," said Loren Ridinger, Co-Founder & Senior Executive Vice President of Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM.

As usual, celebrity guests and close friends of the Ridingers took part in International Convention, including award-winning actress, producer, director, entrepreneur and activist Eva Longoria. The event ended with explosive performances from the Grammy-nominated artist, entrepreneur and Market America's President of Urban and Latino Development Joseph "Fat Joe" Cartagena and Academy Award-, Golden Globe Award- and Grammy Award-winning actor, singer and entrepreneur Jamie Foxx.
