National Harbor, Md. – The Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG) will open the doors to its biannual vendor exhibit and buying show here at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center this morning.
The buy fair is a highlight of the $14 billion buying group’s PrimeTime! summer show and conference, which kicked off yesterday with member meetings, lightening buy deals, and a welcome reception where Louisiana-based C&C Audio, Video & Appliance copped a top sales award.
The show, themed “Fuel for Growth,” will also feature 17 educational seminars; new programs to support NMG’s “draw, escape, sell” step merchandising model; and will debut an eye-catching headphone display developed by the Specialty Electronics Nationwide division and DAC.
PrimeTime! will run through Wednesday.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
