Hosted Buyer's Program
With more than 600 exhibitors anticipated to participate in PMA 09, what will you do to capture attention and make the right contacts?

For a small investment, you can meet with key buyers at PMA 09. Traveling around the country to meet with buyers on your own means more time out of the office and considerably greater expense, not to mention the hassle of getting them to meet with you.

PMA has arranged guaranteed 20-minute appointments with global and national buyers from some of the world’s most influential and volume-driven merchants and buying groups. This is guaranteed face-to-face time – use it to begin a relationship, establish a contact, or set up additional meetings in your exhibit with respected and influential world buyers. The time is all yours!
