 2022 PMA District Suppliers Night Interest Form



PMA District Suppliers Nights bring together local suppliers and manufacturers for an afternoon or evening of exceptionally personal business networking. They are an opportunity for the districts to recognize the accomplishments and initiatives they bring to the local manufacturing community. For exhibitors, it’s a chance to showcase products and services. For attendees, these events are an opportunity to meet with suppliers close to home, without the expense and time away from the office.

 

FAQs What is a Suppliers Night?

How long do they last?

The typical Suppliers Night is no more than 5 hrs., held in early to late afternoon, during the week, typically ending right around dinner time. They are designed for manufacturers to bring their entire buying teams, creating an afternoon/early evening of team bonding in walking the floor, and meeting suppliers and influencers from the local community.

How much do they cost to exhibit?

For budgeting purposes, prices vary by district, however the majority are under $300 for member pricing and no more than $500 for nonmembers.

Nearly every Suppliers Night has bar, food and raffle prize sponsorships. If sponsorships are of interest to you, the typical price range for each is: Bar Sponsor – ~ $500 – $700, Food Sponsor – ~$200 – $500, Raffle Prize Sponsor – ~$100 – $150.

Is there an entrance fee for attendees?
