NGA Trading Partner Business Sessions (TPBS) represent a key opportunity to connect independent retailers and wholesalers with manufacturers and service suppliers (“trading partners”) through pre-arranged senior level meetings designed to discuss mutual business opportunities, strategies and goals. This invitation-only program provides a professional setting for members to meet with current and potential trading partners.
The Trading Partner Business Sessions Program is:

• Exclusive to NGA Members
• Held in conjunction with the 2017 NGA Board of Directors Meeting as well as the 2017 NACS Show.
• Retailers/Wholesalers have the option of meeting with suppliers “one to one” (retailer or wholesaler with supplier) as well to collaboratively meet with suppliers (retailer & wholesaler with supplier). Both meeting formats can be accommodated and collaborative meetings are encouraged whenever possible.   
•Based on meeting preferences collected from retailers/wholesalers and suppliers, NGA pairs trading partners and provides meeting schedules several weeks in advance to allow participants to set agendas
• Suppliers will have an assigned meeting room, allowing them to display products and services
