JW Marriott Water Street
The Convenience Distribution Marketplace is the only national conference and trade show exclusively for the wholesale distributors of convenience products in the United States. Combining relevant and timely education sessions and keynotes, networking and the trade show, Marketplace is truly unique and a ‘must-attend’ event for you and your team.
The wholesale distributors of convenience products are Marketplace’s primary audience. Convenience products distributors represent $102 billion in sales annually, and are the vital link between the nation’s small format retailers and manufacturers. Marketplace offers the nation’s distributors the opportunity to learn, network and build business in an environment solely dedicated to the convenience products distribution industry.
