The RangeMe platform offers an ideal, complementary way for us to expand the reach, product and services offerings of our Windy City and P3 Shows.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2016
RangeMe, the online platform that streamlines new product discovery between suppliers and retailers, and Urban Expositions, one of the fastest growing trade show management companies in the United States, announced a partnership this week bringing greater efficiency to innovation in retail. Through the partnership, two of Urban Expositions’ premier events, the P3|Progressive Pet Products Trade Show and the Windy City Gift Show, will leverage RangeMe’s technology to provide exhibiting suppliers and manufacturers greater reach to connect with retail buyers.
“Building relationships in-person is a valuable and essential part of the product discovery process,” said Nicky Jackson, CEO and Founder of RangeMe. “We’re looking to enhance the trade show experience for both retail buyers and product suppliers.”
Urban Expositions’ P3 Pet Trade Show and Windy City Gift Show each serve key retail sectors in the Midwestern US marketplace. Making its debut August 24-25, 2016 at Chicago's Navy Pier, P3 will bring Midwest pet retailers a forward-looking, fun trade show experience held in one America's top destination cities. The annual event pairs the market's newest pet products with exceptional educational programming and networking events. Held August 12-14, 2016 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, the Windy City Gift Show offers a one-stop resource for the region’s gift and home retailers to explore the latest introductions and innovations from leading manufacturers, sales agencies, artisans and local resources.
“We are always on the lookout for new innovations and strategic partnerships that make our shows even more valuable business growth resources for our buyers and exhibitors alike,” said Dean Russo, Group Show Director, Urban Expositions. “The RangeMe platform offers an ideal, complementary way for us to expand the reach, product and services offerings of our Windy City and P3 Shows.”
RangeMe enables retailers with an efficient way to discover innovative new products and manage the inbound product submission process. Additionally, the platform gives suppliers increased control over the marketing of their products and greater access to retail buyers. RangeMe’s online match-making platform broke US ground in September 2015 with retail giant Target as their official launch partner. After the marketplace thrived for over a year in Australia, founder Nicky Jackson realized the platform was ready for the US market.
“Suppliers and manufacturers are constantly looking for efficient ways to market their products,” said Nicky. “This partnership gives retail buyers a way to discover innovation both online and in-person.”
