A handshake – that’s all it used to take in years past to establish a relationship between a vendor and a distributor.

Customer service and commitment kept that relationship strong and the businesses loyal to each other. In this day and age, the business relationship can be consummated without the buyer ever meeting or even speaking directly with the seller; thus the relationship is “business-like” but not strengthened by the personal contact that bind companies together.

The Solutions Center not only provides distributors with answers to business needs, but also provides that all important “human” contact that keeps distributors loyal to their vendors. These one-on-one interactions also promote a vendor’s willingness to go that extra mile for their distributor customers. The Center is an opportunity for Service Vendors and Purchasing/Marketing Groups to capture the attention of the distributors and demonstrate new techniques, technologies and more efficient ways for customers to manage and grow their businesses.

Twenty tables will be set up in International Center South on Sunday, December 4, 7:30 am – 4:30 pm and Monday December 5, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. The tables are on a first come first served basis.
