Combining distributor-focused education and seminars, fantastic networking opportunities and a tradeshow floor filled with the top trading partners and suppliers of distributors, 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, and represent more than 95% of its attendees. Convenience products distributors represent $102 billion in sales annually, and are the vital link between the nation’s small format retailers and manufacturers. Marketplace affords the nation’s distributors the opportunity to learn, network and build business in an environment solely dedicated to the convenience products distribution industry.

We look forward to seeing you in Tampa!
