Market On-Ramp (MOR) Appointments

New members attending GM20 will have an opportunity to meet with all attending retail buyers.

Mic-Drop Quick Pitches

New Suppliers who have a story to tell are well suited for our Mic-Drop Quick Pitches. This program facilitates a 1-to-many structure that allows you to make an impactful impression on all attending buyers in a 6-minute presentation. Prior to the conference you will receive 1-on-1 professional coaching to help you perfect your pitch and increase your chances of impressing retailers. Once you've concluded your presentation you will have an opportunity to meet with buyers in the Showcase where they can directly interact with you and your product(s).

Product Programs

GM20 will be 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. Both programs are included in your registration cost, but you do need to submit your entries before the deadlines below.
