Buyers asked and we listened…
On April 19th, 2013, Green Festival launches NYC B2B Green Trade Day - an afternoon dedicated to bringing together New York Green Festival exhibitors to sell and take orders from regional retail store buyers.
NYC B2B Green Trade is designed to give buyers an opportunity to meet your business and see, firsthand, your product line in a small, interpersonal, networking setting, unlike the confusion of traditional large scale gift or wholesale trade events. Buyers at NYC B2B Green Trade Day will attend, knowing, with confidence, that every green product viewed is a genuine eco-product line.
For all wholesale buyers, NYC B2B Green Trade Day is FREE to attend!
Over the past eleven years, buyers have attended every Green Festival, connecting with exhibitors nationwide. NYC B2B Green Trade Day is formalizing this existing opportunity by making it easy and fun for buyers to connect with all exhibitors who own start-up or active wholesale businesses.
We expect 75 - 100 buyers to connect with 40 – 50 exhibitors at NYC B2B Green Trade. Marketing efforts targeting buyers include: email, direct mail, trade publication listing and promotions, association promotions, invitations and participation at the NY International Gift Show and Atlanta Gift Mart.
Our targeted buyer list includes:
- Retail members of the Green Business Network from Green America (Green Festival is a project of Green America)
- LOHAS north-east regional retail business members
- Greenopia north-east regional retail business members
