Frequently Asked Questions

What's included with my registration? For suppliers it is all about brand exposure.  A RangeMe brand profile will be created and will showcase your brand and products to your category buyers. Buyers can schedule meetings with brands they are interested in right within RangeMe. Those virtual, face-to-face meetings are then held on the ECRM Connect platform. In addition to brand exposure and discovery, all participants will have access to a best-in-class line up of educational sessions hosted by thought leaders in a variety of industries.

How Do Buyers Discover Products? Buyers can use the filters in RangeMe to search for relevant products based on criteria that is important to them. It is in RangeMe where they also schedule meetings with the brands of interest.

Do I need to have a RangeMe profile in order to register? Having a RangeMe profile makes the registration process much easier, but it's not a requirement. However, you will need to create a RangeMe profile in order to participate in the Global Market.

Do my products need to be distributed globally in order to participate? No, suppliers of all sizes and regions are welcome. We are calling this a global market because there are buyers and sellers from all over the world participating but global distribution is not a requirement.

What are the payment terms? Retail buyers may participate at no cost.  For suppliers, payment is due in full up front and will be collected during the registration process via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover) or ACH. As we begin providing access and coaching to build your brand profile upon registration, this payment is non-refundable.

Are there training resources and customer support available? There is a large library of training materials that can assist with the ins and outs of both the RangeMe and ECRM Connect technologies. Additionally, ECRM will provide a series of informational webinars, training videos, and system tests to ensure your meetings go off without a hitch.

How do meetings get scheduled? As buyers are reviewing brand profiles, they can contact a supplier to let them know they would like to schedule a meeting.  The supplier will be notified and will have access to the buyer’s availability to schedule the meeting during an open timeslot.  At the designated time, both the supplier and buyer will access ECRM Connect to conduct the virtual face-to-face meeting.

As a supplier, how many meetings can I expect? At our first Global Market, most suppliers had between 1-5 appointments, as more buyers participate we expect that number to continue to rise.

How long will each meeting be? Virtual buyer meetings are 15 minutes each, which will enable suppliers to showcase their products and discuss core business details.

I am a supplier, will I receive guaranteed meetings? Your registration does not guarantee that you will receive meetings with buyers as that is up to the buyer whether or not to schedule.  However, we can guarantee you will receive a ton of brand exposure from the correct category buyers as they are searching the RangeMe platform.

As a Buyer How do I get the most out of my Global Market Participation? Global Market is a do it yourself model. The more searching you do, the more meetings you schedule the more value you will get out of the experience. Although meetings take place over a specified week, it is essential that buyers devote time up front to scheduling meetings with suppliers of interest.

How do I access the full list of participating companies? Once your registration is complete you will have access to the list of participating companies within your category on the preparation website.
