DISTREE APAC 2019 exhibitors to benefit from access to Structured Wishlist system
Value-add opportunity for exhibitors to have more influence on audience composition
DISTREE Events has confirmed that its Structured Wishlist system will be made available to exhibitors participating at DISTREE Asia-Pacific (APAC) 2019, which takes place in Singapore on November 6-8th. DISTREE APAC is a premium hosted buyer event that allows consumer tech, consumer electronics (CE) and IT brands to hold pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings with senior executives from top distributors, retailers and e-tailers from across the region.
Stuart Wilson, Event Director for DISTREE APAC, said: “The Structured Wishlist system gives exhibitors greater influence on the audience composition for DISTREE APAC 2019. It allows exhibitors to nominate specific channel partners they wish to hold one-on-one meetings with at the event. These companies are then assessed by our recruitment team and prioritised within our audience database for a hosted buyer invite to DISTREE APAC 2019.”
Aurore Verla-Friess, Operations & Audience Director at DISTREE Events, said: “DISTREE Events prides itself on the quality of its database of channel buyers from 20-plus countries across APAC. The introduction of the Structured Wishlist module will give exhibitors increased influence on the selection of companies from our database that receive hosted buyer invites.”
As a premium hosted buyer event, audience quality is integral to the continued success of DISTREE APAC. Channel executives selected to receive a hosted buyer invite must work for a distributor, retailer, e-tailer or marketplace, sourcing and selling technology products to other channel partners or to consumers. Hosted buyers must have responsibility for vendor relationships within the organisation and the authority and ability to meet new brands and discuss potential business relationships.
Verla-Friess added: “DISTREE APAC is specifically designed to allow exhibitors to manage, build or launch routes-to-market across APAC in the most efficient way possible. The one-on-one meetings that take place at the event are pre-scheduled, ensuring that all delegates get the maximum possible business benefits and return on investment (ROI) from their participation.”
