The Next Generation of Retail Industry Events

We are pleased to house all of your needs under one banner by creating the Non-Foods Industry Summit brought to you by GMDC | Retail Tomorrow.

Strategic Executive Connections

The Strategic Executive Connection (SEC) Program offers “top-to-top” long-range strategizing opportunities, hosted by the sellers. These are mutually accepted meetings will be run virtually, similarly to those at the 2020 Virtual Event.

Buyer’s Choice Appointments

The Buyer’s Choice Program offers discovery and business planning appointments conducted on our virtual meeting platform. Buyers will be able to suggest meeting meeting times with selected sellers. Sellers will subsequently have the option to either accept, modify, or deny all such meeting requests, and will only be charged for the Buyer’s Choice meetings that they accept.
