HBW19 Supplier Programs

A Place For Product Discovery


HBW19 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 10 days prior to the conference.

DEADLINE FOR PREVIEW BOX IS AUGUST 2, 2019

Showcase


The Showcase Program takes place DURING the conference in a space designated for suppliers to set-up their products and displays in a store-like environment. Every attending retailer is then scheduled to tour the Showcase which increases the amount of exposure your products get to buyers. Suppliers then receive real-time updates when a buyer scans their item and upon the conclusion of HBW19, the Top 10 Showcase items are recognized and highlighted in our post-conference communications with retailers and news outlets. 

DEADLINE TO SIGN-UP FOR SHOWCASE IS AUGUST 30, 2019

MarketPlace


We've partnered with Repositrak to bring our members and HBW19 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 follow-up tool to connect with the suppliers they met with and the products they want to bring into the store.
