As Store Brands does every November, this month’s print issue would have been dedicated to previewing the biggest event in private label — the Private Label Manufacturers Association’s Private Label Trade Show — an event that for four decades has brought suppliers and retailers together to further partnerships, start new ones and learn more together about the industry at large.
However, like many trade events, the coronavirus pandemic has canceled the in-person trade show experience. PLMA has pivoted to put together a week-long virtual trade show event that will run Feb. 1 through 5. The event is being called “PLMA Live! Private Label Week.”
