Deli&Cheese 1on1 is a restricted-access event; all participants are pre-screened for eligibility. Supplier delegates are executive-level and senior sales staff with deal-making authority from a wide variety of high-volume providers of deli, cheese and charcuterie products.
You will meet and become acquainted with multiple high-volume Buyers of Deli, Cheese, Charcuterie, Chocolate and prepared foods over two days, in one luxurious venue—no distractions from tradeshows or the office.
You will meet and shake the hand of every Buyer; deliver a closed-door presentation to all Buyers; engage in discussions with Buyers as they taste your product during the sampling session; share meals, breaks, receptions, and more with Buyers; and finally, meet 1on1 with Buyers at their invitation for 20-minute sessions to discuss pricing, fulfillment, and even write orders.
More powerful and hard-to-reach Buyers attend because Deli&Cheese 1on1 puts the control in the Buyers’ hands. They decide which Suppliers they’ll schedule formal meetings with based on your presentation, product sample and their needs and interests.
With a limited number of companies and fewer competitors, you’ll have more face-time with Buyers. Your meetings will be more productive because each Buyer has requested to meet with you. Buyers have already vetted you as a potential good fit for their retail and foodservice operations before you meet with them.
Deli&Cheese 1on1 allows all participants plenty of time to meet and talk in an intimate setting, making it easier to connect, understand, and discover mutually beneficial opportunities. You’ll enjoy the luxury of engaging in meaningful dialogue with Buyers, allowing you to understand their unique needs and challenges, and to discuss ways you might help them meet these needs now and in the future.
While finding new customers is great, nurturing and reinforcing relationships with existing customers is just as important! It’s what you don’t know about your customer that’s critical to meeting their needs. Deli&Cheese 1on1 affords you the time and opportunity to cultivate those important relationships in a relaxed and casual atmosphere and to educate your customers about new products they don’t know you offer.
“One of the best marketing and networking deli and cheese events I have attended. I gauge by the number of ‘qualified’ leads that translated to new customers. I obtained a great deal of information from the presentations. The speakers provided valuable trend forward information and templates. I am committed to attending again.”
