2023 March Import Tour


Registration Deadline is April 5, 2023

Key US retailers are searching for new and interesting products to import from Eastern Europe. At their request, the Presidents Council has developed a series of sales and marketing appointments with key North American retailers and distributors designed to:

• Identify suppliers’ potential in the US market based on direct buyer feedback
• Begin dialog with the responsible merchant at key retailers about how suppliers may capitalize on opportunities
• Identify any obstacles that may need to be overcome directly from the buyer responsible for purchasing the product

These introductory meetings will be conducted in person at the retailer/distributor offices for approximately 30 minutes each

What suppliers should expect:
To meet a decision maker from the accounts listed below.
To learn if there is there an interest in the product(s):
  –If “yes”, then what are the next steps? Follow-up meeting? Participation in a show? Send samples? Vendor listing? Etc…
   –If “no” then why not? So that you can evaluate if it’s something that you can address/fix or spend your energy elsewhere.
