Virtual Events


As the outbreak continues to profoundly disrupt many industries, including retail, protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members and employees is our top priority. Considering the recommendations and guidelines from local and national health agencies, we’ve decided to host our 2020 General Merchandise Conference and Selfcare Summit virtually. 

We’ll be maintaining current meeting formats that GMDC | Retail Tomorrow is best known for by hosting three weeks of …

  • Virtual SEC meetings (45-minutes) take place during the week of October 5-9. We are offering turn-key schedules based on a mutual-match pairing between requested trading partners. Deadline for Sellers to sign up is August 7.
  • Virtual Buyer’s Choice meetings (15 or 30 minutes) take place during the weeks of October 12-16 and October 19-23 and will be self-scheduled by the participants. We’ll also offer an online Buyer’s Choice Discovery Guide – an indexed, searchable, interactive, product guide and meeting scheduler that enables all retailers and wholesalers an opportunity to review products and services from existing and potential partners. Deadline for Sellers to sign up is September 16.
  • Virtual Learning Tracks and content sessions are scheduled throughout the entire event.
