"ECRM sessions are perfect for us because in the same place we can meet our current partners to check-in as well as connect with new potential accounts. Not only do the meetings offer insight, but the sessions are a great place for us to learn more about what’s trending and what’s coming up in the market. We learn a lot from our session attendances because we can survey our buyers all in one place, as well as learn from our peers."
David Slagle, Designer Protein, LLC
"We don’t have to look very far to find the value of ECRM. In fact, we can directly trace over $1 million in sales from the ECRM sessions that we’ve attended."
Too Good Gourmet, Inc.
"We're very happy with the success of this session. Approximately 80 percent to 85 percent of the meetings were valuable leads to grow our business. It's definitely necessary to use these types of sessions to broaden the relationships and express our products in a way that differentiates us from the other hundred Mexican-style salsas on the market -- face to face meetings help us to accomplish that."
Imperio Salsa LLC
"The format is a lot more respectful to suppliers’ time and efforts. Instead of trying to catch a retailer as they are speeding by your booth at a trade show, ECRM brings them right to you for a private, pre-scheduled meeting. It’s much less stressful. ECRM is a great way for emerging suppliers to grow their business, and I would recommend to any supplier looking to get into retail and foodservice. ECRM sets you up for success!"
SOCIAL Sparkling Wine
"We use ECRM as an opportunity to meet with as many retailers as possible to ensure our fine products are made available to customers at retailers across all classes of trade in the U.S. Covering both everyday and Seasonal business. It is a great forum for planning with our business partners and customers."
Haribo Of America Inc
"ECRM hosts the best events that allow us to meet several new suppliers and review new products in one place. By attending the Cosmetics and Contract Packaging Beauty Care events, we were able to pick up many new companies/products. Some other trade shows do not provide a welcoming environment, but not only is ECRM an efficient buying/selling environment, it's a great way to network with people who you might not see at a less structured event."
