The School & Office Program

Join us on August 10, 2020 - August 13, 2020

Engage virtually in the School & Office Program and drive category success year-round

The School & Office Program for years has been where retail changemakers come together with innovative brands to discover new products based on the latest trends, build meaningful relationships and streamline the existing buying and selling process. In preparation and adapting to the new challenges, new categories such as cloth face masks, and antibacterial & sanitizing products that can be used in classrooms will be presented.

What are Virtual Programs?

Virtual Programs facilitate product discovery, category development and planning. Each participating supplier virtually presents their innovations, points of differentiation, and origin stories to relevant buyers listening in from the comfort of their desk. Support services in combination with the meetings drive business success.

How it Works

  • A Client Success Manager assists throughout the entire program with turnkey meeting preparation and follow up.
  • Pre-determined meeting schedule tailored to align your capabilities and objectives.
  • 10 or 20 minute appointments are conducted back to back for 3 to 4 hours each day for 4 days.
  • Meetings are executed virtually through our customized technology solution that features video conferencing, meeting management and documentation including notes and product selections.
  • Access notes and product selections for follow up plus use the RangeMe platform for sample requests, ordering and continued conversations.
