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.
  • Appointments are conducted for several hours each day of the program.
  • 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.
