Engredea Hosted VIP

What is the VIP Program?

Whether you are a sourcing specialist or a marketer leading a product development and innovation team, if you are a primary influencer on new product concept and development, we invite you to participate in the Engredea Hosted VIP Program.

At Engredea, we provide concierge style service and coordinate meetings for VIP attendees. Designed to guarantee the attendance of top level decision makers from consumer products manufacturers, the VIP program fosters a productive business atmosphere where the development of high-value relationships and sales cycles are accelerated; both attendees and exhibitors benefit.

By offering critical sourcing and formulation guidance throughout the year, our Engredea VIP program provides engagement beyond the trade expo. Our Engagement Director continually consults key participants related to their product development and sourcing requirements, prior to and post trade show.

If accepted, you will have a targeted opportunity to meet one on one with industry professionals whose needs meet yours.

Testimony from a client:

...All of our meetings there were a success, with either follow-up meetings at the [customer's] headquarters or them flying down to visit [our] offices. Even more, such personal time is a rare opportunity; with thousands of people everywhere and hundreds of booths to get too, harnessing that rare moment was amazing.
