GM19 Programs

A Place For Product Discovery

GM19 is all about product discovery. Our Preview Box program allows suppliers to send selected products directly to retail buyers attending the show BEFORE it begins. During the conference, suppliers can display their products in a store-like environment through the Showcase program. After the conference and throughout the year, retailers can follow-up with the suppliers they met with through GMDC MarketPlace, an online platform for product review and evaluation.

Preview Box

Preview Box is a program for suppliers to get their products directly into the hands of buyers BEFORE the conference. Participating companies will send products they wish to include in the Preview Box and GMDC will then select which items get sent to retailers. The selected products are then consolidated and shipped to retailers and wholesalers approximately 4 weeks prior to the conference. 



The Showcase Program takes place DURING the conference in a space designated for retailers to see new items, merchandising concepts, and promotional items.   Suppliers are able to set-up their products and displays in a store-like environment. Every attending retailer has pre-scheduled time to tour the Showcase where they can scan items of interest and record items for follow-up.  Suppliers receive real-time updates when a buyer scans their item and upon the conclusion of GM19.  All attendees receive the Top 10 Showcase scanned items which are recognized and highlighted in post-conference communications.

We've partnered with Repositrak to bring our members and GM19 attendees GMDC MarketPlace, an online platform for suppliers to gain additional exposure to their products, and for retail buyers to preview the items and categories they're most interested in. Following the conference, buyers can then use MarketPlace as a tool to discover products throughout the year and to follow-up and connect with the suppliers they met with and the products they want to bring into the store.
