A sourcing event with private brand inclusion is returning this spring. ECRM has announced its 2022 Global Market: Spring Buying Days event that will take place from March 28 to April 1. 

The virtual product sourcing experience aims to bring together retail buyers and product suppliers from around the world across all major food and CPG categories, such as food and beverage, health and beauty, and general merchandise to meet virtually this spring, and it includes a look at private label.

​​"Last year’s two Global Markets exceeded all of our expectations," said Greg Farrar, CEO of ECRM. "With more than 5,200 buyer and supplier participants from over 60 countries, it was truly a seamless global product discovery and learning experience for all involved.”

The event will deliver international scale combining RangeMe's immersive online product discovery experience with ECRM Connect, ECRM's virtual meeting environment. Brands will showcase relevant products to buyers from retailers and foodservice operators of all sizes and locations. Branded and private label categories covered will include food (including frozen, dairy, deli, meat, seafood, candy, snacks and center store), beverages, foodservice, health care, personal care, beauty, wellness, baby, household, housewares and pet.

Product discovery for 2022 Global Market: Spring Buying Days participants begins March 7 and will run through March 31. During this time buyers can easily find relevant products within their respective categories on RangeMe, and easily book a 15-minute face-to-face virtual meeting based on the supplier’s listed availability. Scheduled meetings will take place March 28 through April 1 on ECRM Connect and run 24 hours a day to accommodate global participants.

"Global Market was an excellent balance between buyer participation and educational opportunities," said Gavin Gear, CEO of ManukaGuard. "For an emerging brand like ours, the educational events were profound, and the buyer meetings were very productive. We now have new resources to help grow our business.”

Registration for both buyers and brands is open now and runs through March 7. To attend 2022 Global Market: Spring Buying Days, register here.
