PRO Group to Host Group Merchandising Conference

Manufacturers will meet with PRO Group member distributors in June at the annual Group Merchandising Conference.

The event’s focus is on developing new business relationships and strengthening existing partnerships, according to PRO Group. The event is June 18-20, 2018, at the Embassy Suites in downtown Atlanta.

The conference provides distributor buyers opportunities to meet with manufacturers for private, 30-minute scheduled meetings. Receptions and a networking dinner will also provide opportunities for manufacturers to meet with prospective buyers.

The scheduled meetings allow manufacturers to showcase new products and merchandising displays to distributor buyers from the hardware, farm, lawn and garden and paint sundries categories.

Roger Woodward, president of Alliance Distribution Partners in Tennessee, was a first-time attendee at the 2017 Group Merchandising Conference and is returning in 2018.

“The Pro Group conference was a great investment of our time and resources,” he says. “The event was very well done and the members were engaged and ready to do business. It was a very cost-effective way to reach a number of quality prospects in a short period of time.”

PRO Group, Inc. is an international merchandising and marketing organization that is headquartered in Denver. Its operating units include PRO Hardware, GardenMaster, FARM MART and GOLDEN-LINK.
