The DISTREE event format incorporates four key elements to ensure that both attendees & exhibitors achieve their objectives and make the most of their time out of the office.
The DISTREE concept is a simple one; we follow the tech market and bring senior e-tail, retail and distribution executives looking to source new consumer technology together with consumer tech brands looking for new channel partners in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) region.
Coupled with a relaxed atmosphere, DISTREE EMEA creates a powerful networking platform that allows both exhibitors and delegates to build in-depth relationships and focus on new business development opportunities.
1. Hosted Buyer Model
We Invite the Right Companies
DISTREE keeps up to speed on what's happening in the channel, and carefully selects the right contacts from the right companies to attend as our guests.
Every person you meet at DISTREE represents either a business opportunity or a high calibre channel contact. The DISTREE recruitment team interviews each attendee to ascertain their goals.
Quality not Quantity
No timewasters, members of the public, students or freebie hunters. Just senior channel executives who want to source new products and meet with suppliers.
2. Business Friendly Format
All attendees are allocated a personal account so they can build their own agenda, access essential resources to maximise their time onsite at the event.
The DISTREE show floor is a low key affair. No massive stands with legions of support staff - just a simple set up with the products and key executives to hold meetings with the delegates.
A big part of the agenda is dedicated to face to face meetings between exhibitors and attendees. DISTREE delegates focus on meeting potential customers and getting 'hands on' with the latest tech.
3. Pre-Scheduled Meetings
Face to Face Meetings
20 minutes long and pre-scheduled in advance, this is one of the most effective ways to interact directly with potential business partners and existing customers.
Online Planning System
Thanks to our sophisticated web-planning tool, all exhibitor and attendee meetings are carefully planned, scheduled and optimised prior to your arrival.
The DISTREE team ensures that meetings take place on time. Full service support is available to participants should the need to re-schedule a meeting arise.
4. Channel Insights
DISTREE EMEA incorporates a comprehensive programme of workshops, keynote presentations, product launches and channel announcements into the agenda.
Delegates at DISTREE can access specialised sessions ranging from M&A activity in Europe through to which product categories are set to be the next hit.
