Register now for two prime B2B opportunities to make contact with North American distributors & reps
The EMDA Contact Session is designed to provide manufacturers a unique opportunity for an introductory meeting with individual reps and distributors. At this event, it’s the EMDA member distributors and reps who are behind the tables.
The 90-minute session, held on Wednesday morning, helps bring together manufacturers looking for distribution and the EMDA member distributors and reps looking for those new products. The Contact Session can be used to determine mutual interest in setting up an appointment during the convention week. It’s designed to allow the exchange of basic information that will help distributors, reps and manufacturers determine if a manufacturer’s product will fit with the wholesalers’ current lines and the market potential of the product in their territory. If both parties agree, an appointment can be scheduled to discuss details and contractual arrangements.
Manufacturers with new products for wholesalers to handle will get the most benefit from attendance at this session.
A half-day show-and-tell opportunity for manufacturers and marketers of goods and services of interest to distributors, reps and manufacturers of farm equipment and related products, EMDA’s Industry Showcase is a highlight during the concurrent conventions of the Equipment Marketing & Distribution Association (EMDA) and the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association (FEMA).
EMDA’s Industry Showcase is the gathering place for the industry at convention time and the Association is pleased to note that previous Showcase vendors report in their post-Showcase critiques that their booth visitors are well qualified to make purchasing decisions. More than 500 sleeping rooms are on reserve at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista hotel where owners and key managers of equipment distributing and repping firms and equipment manufacturing firms will be in-house to attend their respective EMDA or FEMA Conventions. The convention schedule is designed to enable these distributors, reps and manufacturers to interact and do business – through informal conversation, scheduled interviews and, of course, contacts made at EMDA’s Industry Showcase.
EMDA’s Industry Showcase is primarily a “table-top” show to inform potential customers about products and services. The Industry Showcase is open Thursday afternoon of convention week. Only persons who are registered for the EMDA or FEMA conventions and who are wearing their convention badges are admitted to view the Showcase. The Showcase is not open to the public.
