"Ingredient Tops has provided provided a targeted audience not possible at conventional trade shows. The direct access to potential customer's entire team at their location would take a significant investment in direct resources. T&G facilitates this in a single event with professionalism and measurable results. Give it a try; we did and have come back for several other events "

“The opportunity to meet so many key people and the exposure…it’s priceless in itself”
Joey Rudnicki – Senior Account Manager – Chr. Hansen
“TOPS approach to helping connect with all departments within the companies they supply could best be described as a rifle approach as opposed to a shotgun approach. The marketing dollars are targeted towards one key customer instead of scattered over 1000’s of companies as occurs at larger trade shows.

Many companies limit travel budgets for R&D departments. As a result, many developers may only be able to attend a general food show once every 3 to 4 years. By bringing the show to the company, everyone can afford an hour to go see what is new and exciting from current suppliers.

Finally, your shows have a theme or focus which is determined by the customer. Hence suppliers come to the show with ideas and concepts which appeal to each customer’s strategic objectives making the time spent by both parties much more productive.”
Mike Rettinger – Global Account Development Executive – Sabroso Company
“Opportunity to meet a variety of staff at these events. Variety includes areas of responsibility (R&D, Nutrition, marketing, etc) as well as different levels within those areas. We have met key people at these events that we may not meet in regular sales calls. Some events are attended by international staff members, which is an added bonus.’ ‘Introduce new concepts/products –show prototypes of finished products and success stories worldwide.’ ‘Talk with marketing/product innovation.’”
Marion Burton - Associate Marketing Manager – Ocean Spray
“We like the availability of meeting numerous people throughout the company in one central location. It is great to have product developers, researchers, and marketing available at the same time/day/event.”
Hope S. Hale – MS, RD, CD – OmegaPure
“From my perspective, the value of participating in a TOPS event, even as a strategic supplier, is that it creates an opportunity for interaction with new people or brands within the customer’s organization. Each opportunity that individuals or organizations have to share ideas outside of normal business practices can lead to great opportunities for both sides.”
Sara Garcia McCormick – Senior Account Manager – The Solae Company
