HBW19 Meetings

Strategic Marketing & Planning


3 unique meeting formats are available to help suppliers meet with retail buyers face-to-face in pre-scheduled meetings. Each format is tailored to help companies build upon existing business relationships or to develop new ones. Established suppliers will have a chance to meet with buyers to evaluate existing product and marketing programs, while new members will have the opportunity to meet with each retailer in attendance during sessions created just for them.
