"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."

"It was my first time experiencing an ECRM virtual show. I was impressed with the technical support throughout the whole process, and the comfort of fitting it in to my work schedule."
Associated Grocers of New England
"I had very productive meetings and was able to meet some new manufacturers I was unaware of, and some that had really innovative products that I think will work well for us. I wouldn’t have found these without participating in the ECRM program this week. I will definitely be back and look forward to it."
Holiday Stationstores, Inc.
"This was my first ECRM experience, in-person or virtual and it was great! Super informative. I came into this with an open mind looking for fast and easy solutions that would help our department adapt to the many changes due to the pandemic. I found some great opportunities that I’ll be following up with right away."

"With this being my first ECRM program, I was pleased with the quality of buyers we met during the ECRM Frozen Foods Fall program. The platform is super easy and the format of back-to-back meetings is very efficient. Well done ECRM!"
"These are pioneering times in the industry we all play in. Your company’s role is setting new standards and it’s great to be both a participant and a partner in it’s development."
Giant Tiger Stores Ltd.
"I launched Veggie Power VEGAN Pizza several months ago. I have never been in the food business before and didn't want to hawk stores to buy my pizza as it’s just a waste of time. I wanted to get into mainstream stores, so I joined ECRM Virtual programs. I was impressed with the platform as it works great and ECRM can jump start your business than if you try doing it yourself!"
TD Specialty Foods, LLC
"This was my first experience at ECRM. Their team was very accommodating, organized and responsive throughout the entire process. The program offered a networking opportunity that I feel like I missed out on over the last year. You are able to engage with new suppliers in a very timely and efficient manner. I look forward to attending again!"
"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!"
