You and your product have made it past the screening round. But what happens when you’re face-to-face with the buyers who decide what goes on the shelves?
Join us for an informational panel to learn what goes into the selection process of curating the offerings at some of New York’s most loved small-batch-focused shops and grocers. Our panel of insiders will tell you what they look for (and what they don’t look for) when deciding what items will make it to a customer’s eyeline (and basket) and how to make your product stand out. Check out the list of speakers below.
