Farouk Hemraj, CEO at ChannelHub, said: “we are very pleased with the enthusiasm and support for the event and the feedback has been immediate. We hope that this will allow vendors to connect with new distributors and retailers across EMEA and APAC and give retailers the opportunity to expand their portfolio and see a live demo of some of the products so they can make an informed decision.”
Pitch-your-Product is hosted by ChannelHub, the first online portal for matching buyers and sellers of consumer electronics. It allowed some new consumer electronic vendors to pitch their products directly to a group of pre-qualified distributors and retail executives from around the EMEA region.
The event allowed each registered vendor five minutes to spotlight and convince registered buyers from across 40 countries. Winners and finalists were selected by a live vote by senior executives from distributors and retailers based across EMEA and APAC.
All participating vendors are listed on ChannelHub platform and can potentially be contacted by any of our 500+ buyers from 65 countries.
