"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."

"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."

"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!"

"ECRM delivers the best ROI for both Time and Expense. We typically attend 8-11 shows per year and meet with many new buyers. Traditional trade shows are still an important part of our product exposure to the market, however ECRM is where the rubber hits the road. Whether it’s a new introduction or an opportunity to reconnect with an existing buyer, ECRM events provide the best setting for getting business done. The iPad technology really sets ECRM apart from the others. The quick meeting recap feature and attachable product sheets preloaded into the iPads, makes the meeting summary and follow-up a breeze. The ECRM Account Managers ensure your best impression is made with your buyers by providing input and direction for your best show results possible. I recommend ECRM for anyone interested in a quality buyer engagement and the best chance for new business, or to grow your existing assortment."
