PRO Group is a two-step distribution buying group in the Hardware, Lawn and Garden, Farm and Ag, and Industrial industries that hosts two conferences annually. The Group Merchandising Conference, hosted by PRO Group, is a unique experience where Manufacturers meet with Distributor buyers.

The 2019 Group Merchandising Conference will be held June 17-19 at the Embassy Suites Atlanta, Downtown at Centennial Olympic Park. The highlight of the conference is 30-minute, private scheduled appointments with Distributor buyers visiting each Manufacturer’s living room suite.

Manufacturers set up their living room suites to combine merchandising display with exhibits, sample product, literature and information to assist Distributor buyers in purchasing retail displays, supplier promotions, new products, and targeted assortments. The GMC is a great venue for both new and longtime group vendors.
