Amid the effects of COVID-19, PRO Group has decided to host a virtual Group Merchandising Conference using Zoom software June 22-24.
Originally scheduled to take place in Atlanta, the event will still allow partner manufacturers and distributor members the opportunity to meet for one-on-one, prescheduled meetings all from the safety of their home or office.
In each appointment, manufacturers are given the opportunity to present products, pricing and program information to distributor buyers without any distraction. This will allow distributors to gain a deeper understanding of individual products and entire lines in one sitting.
“Distributor buyers told us the Group Merchandising Conference is a vital resource to discover new products, programs and suppliers, so we partnered with Zoom to create an amazing virtual meeting experience that rivals being face-to-face,” says Steve Synnott, president and CEO of PRO Group. “We are excited to showcase this technology for the benefit of all PRO Group Member Distributors and Manufacturers.”
The company says that in the coming weeks, staff will spend time with manufacturers and distributors to ensure they are comfortable using Zoom software.
