The Next Meet the Buyer Event – November 24, 2011

On November 24, 2011, The Home Depot Canada will host its second Meet the Buyer event in Kanata, Ontario. Small and medium-sized Ontario- and Quebec-based manufacturers with an innovative home improvement product or technology are invited to apply.

Qualified manufacturers will be invited to the event and given the opportunity to:

  • Pitch their product to a buyer from The Home Depot Canada
  • Showcase their product to members of The Home Depot’s Merchandising Team, including Senior Leadership, in a tradeshow style environment
  • Attend presentations given by senior representatives of The Home Depot Canada, the Ontario Government and others
  • Network and share experiences with key representatives from The Home Depot Canada, the Governments of Ontario and Quebec as well as fellow innovative product manufacturers
  • Develop valuable knowledge related to the requirements of doing business with a large retailer such as The Home Depot.

    Manufacturers of promising products will earn a defined trial period with The Home Depot Canada in select Ontario stores. Products that prove to be successful during the trial will be scaled up to larger markets, with an ultimate goal of national availability.

    To qualify, the product must be:

    • Innovative
    • Intended for the home improvement customer
    • Designed, manufactured or assembled in either Ontario or Quebec

    Products meeting the above criteria will be further assessed on a number of additional business criteria which will include consideration of efforts that the manufacturer has made to integrate environmental or social sustainability into their business or products. There are no fees to apply or to attend the Meet the Buyer event.

    Manufacturers are invited to apply online from September 26 to October 31.
