The ECRM and Levin Consulting Electronics Retail Summit, set to run from 8/15 to 8/18 in Orlando, Fla., gives vendors the opportunity to sit down with buyers from key accounts at both traditional and non-traditional electronics retailers.
Meet first-hand with Imaging and CE category buyers at top grocery, drug, discounters, college bookstores, department stores, travel centers, buying groups, office superstores, computer stores, clubs, mass merchants and many more. Organizers claim the event is a great opportunity to, “Build relationships that have the capacity to expand your business,” the organization states.
This event consists solely of category-specific, one-on-one meetings between retailers and vendors over the span of three days. The private meetings are 20 minutes in length, and vendors meet exclusively with the retail buyers in their category to review new items, marketing initiatives and strategic direction. Each vendor receives a private room for setting up and demonstrating products. Retailers then move from room to room for each meeting. Group meals offer attendees additional networking opportunities.
By combining ECRM’s proven process and Levin Consulting’s commitment to advancing vendor/retailer relationships, the pair provides the electronics and photo industry with an effective way to achieve business goals. The ECRM/Levin Consulting Electronics and Photo Retail Summit is comprised of pre-scheduled meetings that focus on the presentation of products/services and the review of programs in the electronics/photo category. Featured event categories include; computer products and accessories, photo, photo processing and consumer electronics. Participating manufacturers will have the ability to conduct one-on-one planning sessions with several leading PC and CE category retailer buyers.
In addition, meetings will be supported by ECRM’s advanced technology, MarketGate Mobile™, which will enable attendees to prepare and follow-up with their meetings more quickly and efficiently.
