Engage virtually in the School & Office Session with ECRM Connect™ and drive category success year-round

The School & Office Session for years has been where retail comes together with innovative brands to discover new products based on the latest trends, build meaningful relationships, and streamline the existing buying and selling planning process. Retailers will be planning for the next back-to-school shopping season. School & Office suppliers are encouraged to participate in this category review period, with recyclable, sustainable, and eco-friendly products being a focus in the following categories:  Arts & Crafts, Back to School Supplies, Backpacks, Lunch Kits & Hydration, and Office Supplies.

Buyers and sellers are paired based on categories, capabilities, and buyer objectives.
