ChannelHub to Host 400 Tech Retailers in First Retail Connect EMEA


Farouk Hemraj, CEO at ChannelHub

ChannelHub, the first online portal for matching buyers and sellers in the consumer electronics sector, has announced the dates for its first Retail Connect One-to-One event for EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa).


The online event, scheduled for 3-5 November 2020, will allow each registered vendor to access and connect to over 400 registered buyers across the EMEA region. This will allow them to set up direct one on one meetings with key decision makers at some of the leading retailers and distributors in the EMEA region. The event will host keynotes and workshops conducted by event partner, GfK, and pitch sessions from vendors for key consumer electronic segments including mobile accessories, smart tech, PC, gaming, and AV.


Farouk Hemraj, CEO at ChannelHub, said: “as an online portal, we thought we would expand and offer a value-addition to our platform with a well curated event albeit online. In the absence of live in-person events, Retail Connect will give consumer electronic vendors from around the globe the opportunity to reach out to the distribution and retail ecosystem in a planned and productive way. Our monthly Pitch Your Product session was very popular and well attended. This is the next step and our vendors and retailers have welcomed the initiative.


The event will offer:

  • One-to-One meetings: up to 24 fully curated and pre-scheduled meetings per attendee to maximise productivity. ChannelHub’s exclusive meeting scheduler allows vendors and buyers to setup various kind of private meetings: one-to-one, one-to-few, many-to-many.

  • Pitch Your Product (sample here): vendors take the stage for three minutes to pitch their latest product in front of the entire audience across EMEA. A live vote will allow buyers to vote for the best product in various product groups.

  • Keynotes and workshops: knowledge is an inextricable part of all business making decisions. Retail Connect One-to-One brings you a comprehensive programme of keynote and workshops from industry leading research houses to guide you in the current economic turmoil.

In addition, the event will offer an unusual version of networking in a digital event to allow for true networking between attendees. All participating vendors will be listed on ChannelHub platform and can potentially be contacted by any of its listed 500+ buyers from 65 countries. Interested vendors, retailers and distributors can register here.
