We are excited to introduce Prensus to industry buyers and executives during the exclusive tradeshow where drug, food, mass, and specialty retailers converge to scout new, innovative products
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 1, 2008
This week, Prensus executives along with hundreds of retailers and suppliers participate in the fifth annual "Marketplace" hosted by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS). Pretty Practical Productions, LLC (PPP) was among an exclusive list of first-time exhibitors invited to introduce its premiere, patent-pending Prensus Portable Hanging Device to buyers and executives for chain drug retailers.
According to NACDS, this is the fifth consecutive year the organization has offered registered exhibitors the opportunity to present their company and products to retailers through a series of individual appointments during "Meet the Market". This unique one-on-one format allows exhibitors to showcase their products to retailer buyers in a series of 10-minute presentations before the tradeshow begins. Exhibitors who are new to Marketplace, as well as veteran exhibitors with new products, are eligible to participate in Meet the Market. This year, almost 10,000 face-to-face meetings were scheduled between 400 exhibitors and over 300 retailers. The NACDS Marketplace Conference, a powerful convergence of drug, food, mass, club, and value retailing, brings together more than 250 retail companies representing over 145,000 stores with 675 manufacturing companies across 11 major retail categories. The epicenter for health and beauty aids (HBA) and general merchandise (GM) buying and selling, Marketplace represents more than 90 percent of the industry.
"We are excited to introduce Prensus to industry buyers and executives during the exclusive tradeshow where drug, food, mass, and specialty retailers converge to scout new, innovative products," said PPP Founder and CEO, Odilla Sidime.
Prensus has revolutionized the fashion accessory category by offering a portable hook with an adjustable frame that is lighter than a ladies' compact yet able to hang over-stuffed diaper bags, designer handbags and more from a variety of vertical and horizontal surfaces. Since March 2006, we've worked diligently to create product awareness and establish a brand presence by participating in the San Francisco International Gift Fair, ASD/AMD Trade Show and New York Gift tradeshow; gifting celebrities at the Academy Awards Night of 100 Stars Gala, Miss America Pageant and the Sundance Film Festival. Our portable hangers are currently available at boutiques, independently-owned retailers and online at http://www.prensusphd.com. NACDS has furnished PPP with an opportunity that meshes perfectly with our plans to market and promote Prensus to the next phase of chain retailers by meeting with buyers from CVS Caremark, USA Drug, Harmon Stores, Inc., a subsidiary of Bed, Bath & Beyond, Rexall Pharma Plus, Duane Reade, Inc., 7-Eleven Hawaii and the Chain Drug Marketing Association.
