INDEPENDENT SUPPLIERS GROUP SMART SOLUTIONS SERIES
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
Rosemont, IL – May 3, 2021— Independent Suppliers Group is excited to announce its SMART Solutions Supplier Presentation Series is returning for Spring 2021 following the great success of the series that took place during Fall 2020. SMART stands for Sell, Market, Attract, Retain and Train. Last Fall, ISG held 17 virtual meetings over three weeks, with hundreds of its members participating. Starting May 11, ISG will hold 16 virtual meetings over three weeks, anticipating hundreds of members to take part again following a strong registration launch. The sessions will focus on different categories including facilities supplies, office furniture and traditional office products – with a focus on the current trends of Back to the Office, Work from Home, Healthcare, Back to School/Learn from Home and other topics relevant to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic as well as new products and services.
With significantly reduced face-to-face contact, the interaction between suppliers and ISG members has been impacted and this series will reestablish that interaction. The goal of the series is to provide ISG members with information to sell new and different products, market partner suppliers’ brands, help attract and retain customers and foster long-term relationships.
Jill O’Neill, Vice President of Merchandising, Independent Suppliers Group, said, “The SMART Series has been a bright spot for our supplier partners. It gives them the ability to interact with a large group of ISG membership at one time to promote their brands and share emerging trends as many of our suppliers are on the frontlines of innovation. In a time when face to face interaction is limited this series allows ISG an opportunity to bring the suppliers that continuously support ISG to the forefront.”
