We are very pleased to incorporate InXpo as a value-added component of our Merchandising Plan
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 16, 2006
InXpo, the leader in the production and management of online events, has signed with C&S Wholesale Grocers to produce the CSXpo, C&S’ first online selling event. InXpo will provide C&S customers with an online experience that parallels traditional tradeshows/food shows without the hassle of travel or hotel costs. The event will feature the ability for C&S retail store customers to place orders online during the show, interact with C&S and manufacturer sales reps, and win prizes all from the comfort of their home or office.
InXpo believes that C&S Wholesale Grocers, the country’s largest privately held grocery distributor, is the first in its industry to host an online food show. Hosting an online show will enable C&S to reach even more of its customers in a convenient and cost effective way by eliminating travel expense and travel time while offering the same type of communication and savings opportunities available at traditional grocery/food shows.
“We are very pleased to incorporate InXpo as a value-added component of our Merchandising Plan,” stated C&S Senior Vice President of Merchandising Bob Palmer. “InXpo will support our focus of driving continued, enhanced service to our Independent Retail Customers.”
InXpo has gained a reputation as the leader in the online selling event space, after having worked with several key distributors including Emery Waterhouse, Eby-Brown and Amarillo Hardware Company. InXpo features an advanced show order entry system that makes it easy for a distributor’s customers to place orders. The most valuable feature of an online selling event is the real-time sales reporting which allows the distributor to see all orders placed by their customers at anytime. The distributor can then use the online show’s communication tools to interact with their customers and positively impact those orders as they happen.
“InXpo has an outstanding track record in helping distributors generate higher sales through online selling events, and we are delighted to have been selected by C&S Wholesale Grocers, a recognized leader in wholesale grocery distribution,” stated Adam Mankoff, InXpo Co-Founder.
