Information for Vendors

NBS is proud to have maintained solid relationships with our vendors over the past 60 years, and views them as a critical component to our success. Our vendors are not required to join in the same way our members do, but instead submit programs that are reviewed by the NBS staff and Committees for presentation to the Membership.

Buying Markets

Our buying Markets are actual purchasing Markets, not just trade shows. Our vendors have an opportunity to network directly with retailers who attend to purchase products and services based on pre-negotiated and approved programs. Our membership is comprised of knowledgeable professionals who have been in business for years and understand market trends. NBS members are pre-screened, pre-qualified, financially sound large volume dealers. This alone makes your job that much easier because so much of the legwork of developing genuine prospects has been done for you. Now your potential customers will come to you in a central location without you having to make multiple trips to sell your products. 

In addition, NBS will work with you to customize a program that will maximize your sales experience. NBS members are provided with your program offering weeks in advance, and come prepared to write orders. As a new NBS vendor, you will also be able to present your product to our members in an exclusive presentation format, maximizing your market experience. This event is called the Hot Show Buying Session/New Vendor Review and is the highlight of the show for many.

The purpose of NBS Markets is clearly defined: To bring together its members and vendors like you, to conduct business. You will be presenting your product and services to NBS members who represent billions of dollars in combined retail sales!
