What do you see when you look into the future? Do you see opportunities and breakthroughs or problems and obstacles? Store brands are based on optimism. It is all about taking advantage of the future and growing. That is what you will see for yourself if you exhibit or attend PLMA’s 2019 Private Label Trade Show.

You can become part of this exciting phenomenon. Private label market share has reached nearly 25% of unit sales in the U.S. and is expanding faster than national brands. Retailers coast-to-coast have committed themselves to an aggressive store brands strategy while specialty chains are using their own brands to create shopper loyalty unheard of only a few years ago.

Buyers from every channel will be at the 2019 show. 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, looking for new products and identifying 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 1,500 companies from 40 countries will be exhibiting their products, including 25 international pavilions. Exhibitors range from small and medium-size companies to well-known national brand makers who also supply store brands.

PLMA’s 2019 Private Label 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.
