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 and even place orders 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.

When interested in scheduling a meeting with a particular brand, they will have the option to book a meeting and will be shown an ECRM scheduling page based on the brand’s availability. Clicking on an available time slot schedules the meeting. The supplier will then be notified of the scheduled meeting via message on RangeMe. The buyer and supplier will both see the scheduled meeting on their Global Market schedule and will access ECRM Connect to conduct the virtual face-to-face meeting the week of the Global Market.
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 deals you will find and meetings you can schedule to get the most value out of the experience. Deals go live the week of March 28-April 3, however it is essential that buyers devote time up front to review brands, and schedule meetings with suppliers of interest.
Can buyers place orders from me during global market? Yes!

During the window of March 28-April 3rd you will have the opportunity to list your products at a discounted rate to encourage buyer purchase.
