PRO Group To Host Merchandising Conference

This June, manufacturers and PRO Group-affiliated retailers will gather at the annual Group Merchandising Conference (GMC) in Atlanta.

Over the course of the three-day conference, vendors will have the opportunity to demonstrate and display products to distributor buyers in suites with private, prearranged meeting times.

“The GMC has paved the way for new group manufacturers to gain traction within the network of PRO Distributors,” Steve Synnott, president and CEO of PRO Group, Inc., says. “The focal point of the event is private, scheduled 30-minute meetings between buyers and sellers. These meetings present a uniquely valuable opportunity to launch new products, line extensions and promotions.”

PRO Group director of merchandising Brendan Sullivan, along with merchandise manager Joy Smith, other PRO Group staff and PRO Member distributor companies will also meet with manufacturers and distributors during the event.

“The mix of PRO Hardware, FARM MART and GardenMaster distributors allows for an outstanding selling opportunity for both existing and new manufacturer partners in a casual and convenient setting,” Sullivan says. “The GMC is a great place to grow your business.”
