Testimonials


Fred Heavilon, Crayola, LLC. said:

"Over the past eight years I've attended many trade show events, presenting Crayola® and Silly Putty® products to customers across various channels. I'm happy to report that ECRM-run events consistently exceed my high expectations. Partnership with ECRM has been extremely advantageous to Crayola® business opportunities. Here is just a sampling of the vital support they provide. * Presenting new products to current and new customers * Securing customer commitments and/or follow-up meetings * Collecting customer feedback on products and services * Helping with sell through of closeout items * Management and scheduling appointments with valued potential clients * Ensuring easy set-up of presentation rooms or booths * Providing expert support and maintenance of website information. Perhaps what makes ECRM an outstanding leader in their field is a corporate culture that is guided by strong business values, including integrity, objectivity, partnership, innovation and high performance. Naturally, not all customers purchase new Crayola® products, but ECRM expertise gives Crayola® the best opportunity to achieve our greatest sales potential."



Perry Goldstein, Marshall Electronics said:

“The bottom line is I am a manufacturer just entering the Consumer Electronics World. The ability to have face time with this big of a lineup of buyers without ECRM is very difficult. The potential from the Electronics Retail Summit is unlimited and we anticipate a dramatic increase in our sales and distribution within the next two years, from this ECRM event alone. We not only made sales, we learned so much about our packaging and distribution, it was an invaluable experience.”



Jack Gemal, Price Point Accessories dba Section 8 said:

“Efficient, it’s in your name. To try and meet with this many retailers would cost us $100,000 a year and tons of travel. You guys make it a one stop spot for the entire year. In addition, the staff and event coordination is amazing, you handled my meeting requests, freight, everything right down to my door sign. ECRM handles everything involved in the entire process so that we can focus on our goals.”
