I love Meet the Market it’s one of my favorite events. All year long, my team looks forward to it. It’s a long day, but we get to very quickly see a hundred manufacturers across the team. We always talk about what’s going to be the one or two things, the gems that we find at the show. It’s kind of like a diamond in a rough, we get to find new products and new suppliers in that meeting in a very quick, efficient kind of format.
I thought 10-minutes wouldn't be enough but 10 minutes was really a treasure for me. I had 3 products to pitch and I had numerous retailers just almost write an order on the spot.
