SOLON, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Today, business innovation and technology leader Efficient Collaborative Retail Marketing (ECRM®) released their event schedule for the first quarter of 2015.
Since its conception in 1994, ECRM has been revolutionizing the sales and marketing process by uniting retailers and suppliers of the consumer packaged goods industry at Efficient Program Planning Session events.
With the announcement of the Q1 2015 events, ECRM continues to service the established categories of Pharmacy, Health & Beauty Care, Grocery, and General Merchandise but also embraces new and up-and-coming categories like: Convenience; Impulse; Front-End & Checklane; E-Cigarettes, Vapor & E-Cigars.
ECRM is also expanding outside the traditional CPG categories with a Foodservice event that focuses on presenting food items to foodservice outlets like colleges, hotels, restaurants, amusement parks and airlines.
"To describe an ECRM event in just a few sentences is quite a challenge, but here's a watered down version of what we do. Sellers set up a private meeting space just like a showroom. Then, the appropriate category buyers travel from one meeting space to another for pre-scheduled strategic meetings. Whether you're a buyer or seller this format provides you the face to face time needed to complete your planning responsibilities in just a few days in one convenient location," explains Sarah Sweitzer, Vice President of Grocery at ECRM.
