ECRM Opportunities for Colleges & Universities  2/19/2016

Buyers for university foodservice and convenience store operations have many opportunities to find new and innovative products, network with industry peers, and learn industry trends at ECRM's EPPS events.

During our events, buyers attend pre-scheduled one-one-one meetings with suppliers of food, general merchandise and health and beauty care suppliers. These meetings are a great way for them to discover new products and suppliers to help drive sales to their stores.

Two events, in particular are ideal for University buyers:
  • At ECRM's Convenience event, they can meet with suppliers of consumable grocery items -- such as snacks, beverages, candy -- in addition to sellers of HBC and general merchandise products.
  • At the ECRM Foodservice event, university buyers have an opportunity to find innovative foodservice products and develop culinary programs via private, one-on-one tastings with food and beverage suppliers.
Attendees of both of these event can participate in ECRM's University Roundtable programs, during which they can take a deeper dive on key industry issues in a moderated discussion.

And as with all of ECRM's events, attendees can connect with industry peers during several networking functions, and learn about industry trends from ECRM's educational programs.

In the video below, you'll hear about some of the opportunities offered to University attendees firsthand from Allen Hardage, CEO of Hardage Brand Solutions, who attended ECRM's recent Convenience event representing more than 40 universities.
