Sponsorship Opportunities

Reserve a Tabletop

Unlike traditional trade shows, this is an intimate event that cultivates a collaborative environment. While the 2022 convention is expected to attract over 450 distribution professionals, you will have the opportunity to make one-on-one connections through our tabletop booths. Tabletops provide a private and comfortable setting for attendees to establish partenerships and deepen existing relationships. To make sure maxiumum levels of productivity are met, trading partners are encouraged to reach out to each other ahead of time to set up appointments for business meetings.
