Sponsorship Opportunities

Unlike traditional trade shows, this is an intimate event that cultivates a collaborative environment. The 2024 convention is expected to attract over 1,000 distribution professionals and you will have the opportunity to make countless one-on-one connections through our tabletop booths. This format provides a private and comfortable setting for attendees to establish new partnerships and deepen existing relationships. To maximize your productivity, trading partners are encouraged to reach out to each ahead of the event to schedule meetings.
