Following on from the success of last year’s event in Prague, Levin Consulting and ECRM have announced their market leading Electronics Retail Summit for 2011 show will take place the 4th – 6th May at the five-Star Real Palacio Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal.

 

The European Retail Summit is designed to bring vendors with innovative and up-to-the-minute technology solutions from the Accessories and Peripherals Categories together with retail and e-rtail buyers and distributors from across Europe who are looking to find the products that will shape their categories in the coming year. For many products, ERS is the first time these innovations are shown to the retail channel.

 

Categories such as Computers, Smartphones, Tablets, TV, Audio and Gaming are all driving the growth and increased demand for Accessories and Peripherals. It’s a fast paced arena and one which offers the retailer an opportunity to differentiate, which is why Levin Consulting decided to dedicate their whole summit to it.

 

Emphasis at the two-day event is solely focussed on “doing business”. Everybody attending from both the vendor and purchasing side is a decision maker. Meetings are arranged in private suites in one-on-one meeting style. These meetings last 20 minutes and the buyers move between the suites in a “speed dating” format.

 

The fast pace, with condensed meeting times, private discussions and the über efficient ECRM events team organising all the meetings in advance, means that both the vendor and the buyer will leave the show pretty tired, but they will have achieved what could take them months or even a year to do normally.

 

“This is a very focused event for retail and e-tail buyers with quality vendors, and it is very well organised. The one to one dedicated meetings in a private environment really do work to achieve business results,” commented Karl Angove from online electronics retailer, Pixmania.
