DM-IDEX (Distributor-Manufacturer Idea Exchange)

Thursday, June 7
2:00 - 5:00 p.m.

DM-IDEX (Distributor-Manufacturer Idea Exchange) is a tabletop forum designed to truly maximize your Canadian Conference ROI. It is a time- and cost-effective opportunity to meet face-to-face with several potential and current business partners in a one-on-one setting.

Whether you are focused on touching base with current partners or expanding your supplier/distribution network, DM-IDEX offers you the opportunity for 12 one-on-one discussions in 15-minute, pre-scheduled appointments during a three-hour period.

The structure of DM-IDEX allows both distributors and manufacturers to schedule appointments, ensuring each has the opportunity to meet with those of interest, giving all participants the ability to get business done at the Canadian Conference.  

How does it work?

Distributor member companies in attendance will be assigned a table. Using PTDA’s online appointment scheduler software, distributor companies will have the ability to schedule up to seven 15-minute appointments with attending manufacturing companies, while three 15-minute time slots are reserved for attending manufacturing companies to make appointments with distributor companies in attendance. Two additional 15-minute time slots are reserved for open time to allow an opportunity to meet with companies where you are not able to schedule an appointment.

May 8-16: Distributor company representative schedules up to seven (7) 15-minute appointments with registered manufacturer companies on a first-come, first-served basis.   

May 18-25: Attending manufacturer company representative schedules up to three (3) 15-minute appointments with distributor companies in attendance on a first-come, first-served basis.
