The Place To Be

Where will you be Nov. 17-19, 2013? You should be at PLMA’s 2013 Private Label Trade Show, the private label selling opportunity of the year. Buyers from today’s supermarkets, supercenters, drug chains, mass merchandisers, convenience stores, online retailers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, discounters, and even military exchanges will all be on hand to see new products and find new suppliers.

For more than 30 years, PLMA’s annual trade show has been the industry event of the year, where retailers and wholesalers source for their private label programs. More than 1,000 companies from 35 countries will be exhibiting their products, including 15 international pavilions. From food, snacks and beverages to household and kitchen products to health and beauty to GM. Exhibitors range from small and medium-size companies to well-known national brand makers who also supply store brands.

PLMA’s 2013 Private Label Trade Show will be tough to beat. No show offers exhibitors an opportunity to meet as many buyers from as many retail channels. That’s why almost 85% of the show’s exhibit space is renewed every year. Don’t miss the chance to build your private label business. Private label market share continues to grow. That’s why PLMA’s annual show is the place to be.
