"This was the first time we attended ECRM Merchandising Solutions EPPS. Although the concept sounded great, we really did not quite know what to expect. Everything was incredibly well organized, from the move-in, where last minute changes that we made to our meeting space did not pose any problem, to the detailed meeting and customer listings provided to us on an iPad. The meetings went exactly as scheduled, with great meals and entertainments to add to the experience! All aspects of customer service were second to none. We do a few typical trade shows annually, but this concept beats all. We look forward to the doing this show again in 2019!"
Joanne Vogler, Marketing Impact
"Merchandise Planning was good in 2017 and even better this year, 2018. Our focused, one-on-one meetings led to many very good leads. As always, the level of service and organization by ECRM staff was excellent and the EPPS format is an excellent price value."

"This was our second time attending the ECRM Merchandising Solutions EPPS event and it proved as good as last year. Like last year, I met with a variety of quality buyers and had successful first meetings. The ECRM staff managed the event extremely well and we recommend Merchandising Solutions."

"ECRM is not a show. It is a unique format and it was our first experience and we were very pleased. We had a very good mix of one-on-one pre-scheduled meetings with buyers that allowed us to understand their needs and challenges and then tell them how Panel Processing can help them solve those issues."

"True Food Service has attended ECRM’s Merchandising Solutions EPPS for three years and have found the one-on-one pre-scheduled meeting format to be very instrumental in our growth of sales. We have already registered for 2018."

"Trade shows have become just a way to see what our competition is doing. Meetings like ECRM are much more effective and focused because the buyers have been pre-qualified and have a need for our services."
John Westerhoff
"We attended ECRM’s Merchandising Solutions EPPS for the first time in February. It is not a trade show per se, but a slate of pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings with buyers which we found to be very fruitful. ECRM provided lots of value to Samaritan Display."

"Thanks for putting on a great event. Your team is extremely professional and does a tremendous job making the event successful for both suppliers and buyers. This was Design Manufacturing’s first ECRM Fixture Review it was a great event. We had excellent meetings with retailer buyers and great connections with other suppliers. The ECRM app for the Connect software was a great tool supporting activity in the booth plus pre and post event. We are definitely doing the event next year and recommend it to others buyers and sellers."
Matt Renner

"The perfect venue to make new contacts. At most trade shows, it is highly unusual to have 20 min one-on-one conversations to understand the customer’s needs and see if it’s a mutual fit. We have no hesitation to return next year and of course, the old rule still applies- will only find success with follow up!"

"ECRM events are a great way to network and find new ways or ideas to create value propositions for your business. The ECRM team takes care of all your travel and accommodation details- making it easy to participate without having to coordinate arrangements. Just gaining one or two contacts or leads makes the whole event worthwhile."

"ECRM is an extremely efficient use of my time to meet with numerous vendors. We are in the initial stage of developing new checkout concepts and saw some innovative concepts at the show. ECRM provides a personalized experience that other trade events simply cannot."

"Top Shelf has found participation in ECRM to be very beneficial because are able to have very meaningful meetings with the right buyers for fixtures. The ECRM does a great job of organizing and running the event."
Dennis Poudel

"I attended ECRM’s Innovations in Retail Fixturing and Checklane, Front-End, and Impulse events for the first time and found it to be an exceptional forum to generate new business. Top-Shelf Fixtures had very good meetings and the twenty minute one-on-one meetings were timed perfectly to maximize coverage of the buyers. The ECRM staff did an excellent job of managing the event and the MarketGate Mobile data base was a great resource for discussions with the buyers. We will be looking to include ECRM in our future trade event schedule."
