Meet Your Makers

July 1st 2016

Provender Alliance invites you to participate in another year of “Meet Your Makers”. The success of this event grows with each passing year.  This event is something like a tabletop show only Provender-style. We invite Provender member manufacturers and distributors and others come set up a table and tell the story of their business to conference participants. This is an opportunity for retailers to learn more about the people behind the products they sell and for everyone in the natural products community to network in a fun and informative atmosphere.

This is an unconventional sales event.  We have fun.  We dress in costume. There is no pressure to book orders, just an opportunity to let people see the human side of member companies, their story, their values and their vision. We encourage participants to be original and lighthearted with their table and gear it towards telling the story of their business as well as offering samples. We request that you or one of the key people in your company staff the table.  This is not a place to send the broker in your stead.  We want people there who are intimate with your operation.

Board members will have their own themed table, the better to get to know our members.  There will be beverages for sale.

This event will take place on Thursday, October 5, 2016 from 4:30 to 6:30 PM, at the Hood River Inn in Hood River, Oregon at our 41th Annual Educational Conference.  We have more tables available this year and will still offer them on a first come, first served basis.

If you are interested in participating or have questions, please contact Rachel Mitrani at rachelmitrani@yahoo.com or call her at 503.841.1480.
