Introducing The Pantry Live
Your brand has a genuine opportunity to be noticed at our virtual event for food and drinks brands, The Pantry Live on 5th and 6th October 2020. We're offering our Product Guru community an exclusive price of £195 (plus VAT) to exhibit at the event and to benefit from a packed two-day agenda of virtual masterclasses, Q&As, panel discussions, networking opportunities and conversations with retail experts, leaders and peers.
We've confirmed an impressive line-up of buyers and there's no waiting for range review dates.
Buyers have cleared their diaries on 5th and 6th October to review products. Buyers from major UK names including John Lewis, Waitrose, Tesco, Lidl GB, Co-op, Scotmid, Holland & Barrett, WHSmith, Oxfam, ScotRail Alliance and many more independent retailers have confirmed that they're joining us to visit our virtual exhibition. Exhibitors at the virtual exhibition are limited to a small number, to allow us to curate products into collections and trends that buyers are searching for.
Some buyers will carry out dedicated "Meet Your Match" buying sessions where brands will be matched with a panel of buyers and have the opportunity to do a short pitch.
The Pantry Live is supported by our amazing partners
We're delighted to be supported by brilliant event partners who'll be joining the two-day virtual sessions programmes that'll complement the trade show. You'll benefit from drop-in sessions, masterclasses, panel sessions and Q&As with partners, with the opportunity to learn about global retail standards, Fairtrade and Vegan Society certifications, local and ethical sourcing, among many other relevant topics of discussions.
Does your product stand out? Is it different from the norm? Is it a delicious, taste sensation?
Exhibitors at The Pantry Live are invited to submit product samples to take our panel of tasters - made up of buyers and industry experts - on a tasting tour, to find out if your products get the judges' seal of approval. You can look forward to some valuable feedback about your product. We'll give you all the details of how to submit your products to feature in The Pantry Tasting Tour in your exhibitor pack.
As an added bonus, products featured in our Pantry Tasting Tour will automatically be entered into our Product Taste Award category in The Pantry Live awards.
