It's time for PLMA's Store Brands Reality Trade Show. More than 2,400 exhibit booths, over 5,000 buyers and visitors, nearly 20,000 different products - from food, snacks and beverages to health and beauty, kitchen, household and GM- all store brands, all under one roof at one time.
Buyers from every channel, too: today's supermarkets, supercenters, drug chains, mass merchandisers, convenience stores, online retailers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, discounters, and even military exchanges, all will be on hand to find new products and identify 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 1,200 companies from 35 countries will be exhibiting their products, including 20 international pavilions. Exhibitors range from small and medium-size companies to well-known national brand makers who also supply store brands.
Store brands will be fun, too. Watch PLMA's "Jungle Island Survival Test." Or, guess who wins when shoppers go head-to-head, up and down the aisles of a typical American supermarket on "Market Basket Savings Contest." Chefs get into the act too, matching ingredients and cooking styles in "Battle of the Recipes."
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 and overall exhibit space has been expanding 10% annually. Don't miss the chance to build your private label business.
The Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA) is a non-profit organisation founded in 1979 to promote private label. It is the only organisation of its kind, representing more than 3,500 member companies around the globe. Membership ranges from multinational corporations to small family-owned companies. Their products include food, beverages, snacks, health and beauty, household and kitchen, DIY, and personal and leisure products. Some manufacturers only do private label. Others are well-known brand makers who also have private label operations.
