  •  Health Guard attended ECRM’s Checklane, Front-End, and Impulse event for the first time and found the schedule of meetings with buyers to be very high quality. MarketGate Mobile software has been very useful for us to manage our activity at the event and assist us with follow-up. We have also participated in Vitamin, Diet, and Sports Nutrition with ECRM and will be looking into doing other ECRM events in the future. 

    Bruce Smith - HealthGuard Wellness LLC

  •  The MarketGate technology is amazing. It provides a centralized point to access all the follow-up information with not only the people that we met at the show, but other target customers as well. It’s an excellent tool. 

    Gregg Raffensperger - Delizza Patisserie

  •  Everyone who attended ECRM’s Meal Solutions for Convenience Channels EPPS was very impressed with the MarketGate software package and their overall service. The innovations of their program definitely provide a value-added service to both distributors and suppliers. The software they provide prior to, during and after their events is an excellent tool that suppliers quickly realized to be very beneficial. 

    John Boylan - Berks Packing Co

  •  The MarketGate Mobile note-taking software is simple, easy to use and provides an easy channel for follow-up. We can keep track of our schedule and take notes easily. The software capabilities on the site are a bit more robust than will apply for our business but we are very satisfied with the applications we have used. 

    Drew Tombs - ATC Group, Inc.

  •  I attended ECRM for the first time and found it to be very well run and the twenty minute one-on-one meeting sessions really worked well. The MarketGate Mobile software on the ECRM-issued iPad was very useful. We will definitely look to include ECRM on our trade event schedule going forward.
