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
Format: 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.
