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.

Vendor Benefits

  • NBS Markets are actual purchasing markets, not just trade shows.
  • NBS 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.
  • NBS Markets allow potential customers to come to you in one central location.
  • 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 present your product to our NBS Members in an exclusive presentation format, maximizing your market experience. Known as the Hot Show Buying Session or New Vendor Review, these presentations are the highlight of the NBS Market for many members and vendors alike.
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!
