Buyer Checklist & Tips

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO BEFORE THE SHOW

  • Get familiar with our digital planning tools in order to plan and navigate the show. Via these outlets you’ll have access to exhibitor lists, show floor maps, and the App—where you will have the ability to book appointments directly.
  • Review your merchandise sell-thru and take notes on your bestselling styles, brands, and sizes.
  • Be a leader, not a follower! Know what is happening and selling in your area by doing your homework. Shop the local competition, make notes on price points and brand names, and talk to your customers to see what they would like to see in your store.
  • Read up on different industry websites, newsletters, and follow trends and brands on social media to find items that catch your eye.
  • Plan your Open to Buy (OTB).
  • Register online for market info.
  • Make your market appointments.

 

VIP ITEMS TO PACK

  • Re-sale certificate and tax ID number.
  • Projections, otb, order sheets, and calendar list of appointments.
  • Bring business cards, credit card, and visuals of your merchandised store to line sheets or look books.
  • Pack a notebook, a folder, and your cell phone to take photos.
  • Bring your laptop for checking for working orders at night and balancing your budget.
  • Sign up for platforms that show you real-time inventory. Many brands do their business online, and will only allow you to order via these outlets.

 

SHOWTIME PLAN-OF-ATTACK

  • Start early!
  • Utilize the SOURCING at MAGIC platform to map out your day. Note the booths and vendors you want to see or with whom you have appointments.
  • Walk row by row, floor by floor. You never know what you may find.
  • Don't be shy. If you see a busy booth, ask what time would be good for you to come back.
  • Network—build a group of market friends that you can have lunch or dinner with and share experiences.
  • Set a goal of visiting 10 new vendors per market.
  • Write your order at the show! It can be overwhelming to try to do it when you get back home.
