Regional Buyer Shuttle Services
If you think we won’t go the extra mile to get you to the market…think again! If you live within approximately
60 miles of the Tupelo Furniture Market you need only coordinate with us in advance and we will, at NO
CHARGE, provide you with shuttle services to and from our event. Attendees within 120 miles of the market may also expect shuttle services at NO CHARGE. However, at least a one night stay in Tupelo is required.
Buyer & Seller “Matchmaker” Initiative
Many thousands of buyers attend each and every Tupelo Furniture Market. There is no way one exhibitor can meet everyone. Nor can every buyer physically stop, talk to or buy product from every exhibitor. Thus, many meetings are left to chance because there is not always structured communication between the buyers and sellers before, during or after the show. With this in mind, the TFM Buyer Recruitment Department created the Buyer and Seller “Matchmaker” Initiative.
The program consists of three main components which are facilitated by the TFM sales staff, buyer recruitment personnel and the marketing department. The components include:
- Pre-show communication between exhibitors and pre-registered attendees that have an interest in meeting.
- On-site meetings scheduled by the Buyer Recruitment Department.
- Post-show communication & promotion between buyers & exhibitors.
The “Matchmaker” Initiative was launched in February of 2012 and has been incredibly effective! If you would like to learn more about how to participate in this exciting new TFM offering, please call our Buyer Recruitment Department at 662-842-4442 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
TFM Weekend Pass
As with our highly successful Hosted Buyer Package, our Buyer Recruitment personnel are working with key exhibitors to develop and fund travel packages for targeted buyers that plan on driving to the market. Buyers chosen for a TFM Weekend Pass will receive hotel accommodations, fuel reimbursement, meals, TOS Club Membership, TFM Show Dollars and more! Those accepting this incredible offer, essentially a no-cost trip to the Tupelo Furniture Market, must agree to attend the market on Saturday and Sunday!
Hosted Buyer Program
For each of our shows, our leading exhibitors provide TFM’s Buyer Recruitment Department with a list of whom they consider their “Top Buyers”. Buyer Recruitment personnel then work collectively with these exhibitors to develop and fund a package for these targeted retailers that may include airfare, transportation and hotel accommodations. Other offers may include entertainment, B2B meetings, educational opportunities, special incentives on product purchased and/or TFM Show Dollars!
The Buyers on this target list often include the “TOP 100” Buyers in the country, but the list also includes key regional retailers and individuals or companies that are new or growing rapidly. If you believe you may be on the Hosted Buyer List, don’t wait to hear from us. Please call to confirm so we can immediately begin planning your trip to Tupelo!
TOS Club Membership Buyer Benefits
Buyers want value. The TOS (Tupelo Only Special) program has been in existence for several years and has been very successful. However, we have expanded the benefits. These include:
- Special Networking events with special pricing opportunities
- Opportunity to win “TFM Show Dollars” for on-site only purchases from our exhibitors
- Incentives offered by participating exhibitors exclusively for TOS Club Members
- Special rates for travel, accommodations, entertainment & meals during the market
- No charge and guaranteed seat at “Lunch and Learn” Sessions
- Potential to participate in the Top Exhibitor, New Exhibitor and Hosted Buyer Programs
“Lunch and Learn” Sessions
This seminar series which was launched at our 2013 spring market was very successful but many of our attendees were not able to attend because of limited seating capacity. Therefore, we will again offer this series of seminars.
The “Lunch and Learn” Sessions will be held in the Magnolia Room located in building 2. Our speakers are always well-known, professional consultants that have made dramatic improvements in operations and profitability for retailers. These seminars are offered at no additional cost to attendees. For full details please visit our Show Specials section.
The Tupelo Furniture Market’s mission is to provide opportunity for the industry to do business. But that doesn’t mean the opportunity is limited to the dates of our spring and fall events! TFM offers many ways for our exhibitors and attendees to stay in touch. Our buyers can benefit from the following:
- Receive e-messages pre, post and between each market
- Gain access to special offers from exhibitors in the TOS Section of our recently re-designed, optimized website
- Learn about new products and services through Facebook & Twitter
