Buyers attend the NLGS because it’s an efficient way to discover new products and find qualified Vendors. Rather than a typical booth style show NLGS present buyers with pre-set scheduled 10 minute appointments with vendors. Its fast, concise, and productive.
Our 2-day format provides for a good balance of fun and business saving you time and money by combining several months of meetings into one event.
Appointments – Like speed dating the appointments are fast-paced, highly productive and efficient. Buyers select the product categories of interest at registration. Appointments with Vendors are pre matched and scheduled based on these product selections.
Point of Purchase Display – While the heart of the show is the face-to-face appointments, the POP display area is the place to view all the exhibiting vendors product displays. POP is not open to the public and is previewed by Buyers privately on Monday night following the reception.
New Product Display – This area highlights innovation with the hottest new product and prototypes. This gives buyers the opportunity to see new products with less than one year on the market. Buyer Pick Awards are chosen from NPD by the buyers with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners announced at lunch on Tuesday.
Vendors in Action VIA Sponsorship –While our appointment floor is great for the business side of things, the VIA event is what NLGS is founded upon. This fun entertaining offsite event takes place Tuesday night.
