Where store brands take on all comers.

Announcing PLMA’s 2012 Private Label Trade Show, where store brands take on all comers.  Whether you exhibit or attend, you will score a knock-out by participating in  the industry’s private label event of the year. 

Come and see thousands of products, all devoted entirely to store brands. Meet buyers from today’s supermarkets, supercenters, drug chains, mass merchandisers, wholesalers, importers and exporters, discounters and convenience stores, even military exchanges.

This year’s show 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 international corporations to small and medium-size companies. More than 35 countries will be represented on the show floor, including more than ten national pavilions.

To maximize efficiency, the show floor is divided into food and non-food halls. The schedule is concentrated into two days of exhibition time, too, so their time away from the office is at a minimum.

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 will also be special pavilion devoted to the fast-growing categories of pet care, cosmetics and innovation and technology.

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.

PLMA’s annual private label trade show is unique. No show offers exhibitors and visitors as great an opportunity to meet decision-makers from all retail channels.

The new Nielsen study on private brands says it all: private brands have become part of the retail culture as retailers look for new ways to unlock sales through ongoing innovation, multi-tiered offering and unwavering commitment to quality. Exhibit or attend and find out why store brands is taking on all comers.



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.
