Appointments – Like speed dating the appointments are fast-paced, highly productive, efficient, and fun. You get ten minutes to pitch your product, but more importantly, to start a relationship. Buyers select the categories they wish to see and Vendors Select the buyers they wish to meet. All meetings are prescheduled and matched by category selections. Category List
Point of Purchase Display – While the heart of the show is face to face appointments, POP is the space for all product displays. A 2×2 foot POP display space is provided with registration. Choose table or floor.
The POP display area is previewed by Buyers giving them an opportunity to see, touch and feel all products the night before appointments.
New Product Display – Highlights innovation with the hottest new products and prototypes. All entries must be new to the market, less than one year. Buyers provide written evaluations and vote for the Buyer Pick Awards. First second and third place winners receive additional publicity and cash prizes. Buyer Pick awards are announced at lunch on Tuesday. New Product Display
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 offsite event with buyers helps you build on Buyer relationships in an entertaining and personal environment. More VIA information
