From cities to suburbs, from the country to seashore, it has become a store brands world. You see it in shopping carts and on retailer shelves. You read about it in blogs and can count it in market share growth.

Want to meet the manufacturers who make the store brands that retailers sell to consumers. PLMA’s 2012 Private Label Trade Show gives you the chance to meet them and build your private label business. For more than 30 years, PLMA’s annual trade show has been the industry event of the year where supermarkets, drug chains, mass merchandisers, wholesalers, importers and exporters, discounters and convenience stores, even military exchanges, have come to find products and suppliers.

PLMA will present more than 2,000 exhibit booths, featuring food, snacks and beverages, household and kitchen products, GM, and health and beauty. Exhibitors range from large, well-known store brand makers to small and medium-size companies. More than 35 countries will be represented on the show floor, including ten national pavilions.

There’s PLMA’s New Product Expo, too, that spotlights exhibitor innovations in products and packaging and Idea Supermarket, that showcases private label programs from retailers around the world.

There are also seminars and workshops on the latest private label trends and PLMA’s Weekend with St. Joe’s for sales and marketing professionals who want to seriously learn about the industry.

PLMA’s annual show is also a great place for private label networking. There are brokers and sales agents to help new exhibitors understand the marketplace. There are product development experts who can help put ideas onto retailers’ shelves. There are ingredient suppliers who can demonstrate new ways to improve products and increase marketability.

If you are already making and selling store brands, then PLMA’s 2012 trade show will open additional doors for you and your products. If you are not in store brands yet, PLMA can help launch your company’s business success.

The 2012 PLMA Trade Show will be held at the Rosemont Convention Center, only 10 minutes from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Conveniently located within walking distance or short shuttle bus rides from major hotels, the convention center provides exhibitors with an easy-to-reach, efficient venue for trade shows.
