Presented by Lee Smith, Senior Vice President, Phoenix Media, Publishers of Deli Business and Cheese Connoisseur
7:00 – 9:00pm | Networking
Buyers will enter our Product Showcase, where each Supplier will be presenting their products for viewing/tasting/sampling.
Buyers will have chosen which Suppliers they wish to meet with and a meeting schedule will be set up for each Supplier and Buyer. These 20-minute meetings are a time to begin discussing the Buyer’s sourcing needs as well as production capabilities, product availability, delivery schedules, pricing, private labeling and even the development of programs. Suppliers are stationed at their own private sections and Buyers move from Supplier to Supplier. This allows Buyers to ask questions without interruption, making it easier to do business and resulting in more productive meetings.
