to Vendors
You're Invited to Exhibit at
the 2020 Video Trust Virtual Market
October 27-29

(Included with your Corporate Membership in Video Trust)

Nearly everyone who's ever attended it misses The National Media Market, and we're bringing it back — online — at greatly reduced expense for vendors and attendees. Take advantage of increased opportunities to meet with customers, and a huge promotional push. As a Video Trust Corporate Member, your complete registration costs will be covered.
How the Video Trust Virtual Market Will Work

Vendor Virtual Suites
Only Video Trust corporate members are eligible to exhibit (join now). Each Vendor/Member receives a listing in the Virtual Market section of our new website (launching September 10th). Each vendor listing is built to include:
  • Your logo and vital information
  • Photos and names of your representatives
  • A link to your website
  • A link to your show reel (show reels have NO restrictions at the Virtual Market. Make them any length, host them wherever you like. Show reel links will be publicly visible and remain so until you change them or take them off your page.
  • A link to your schedule, visible only to registered Member/Buyers, allowing them to claim a meeting time with you. (See more below.)

If you're unfamiliar with the scheduling and meeting functions on the Zoom system, don't worry — we'll walk you through it. Just contact us to request a demo.

About Your Customers
Any member of Video Trust is eligible to attend the Market, and they will undergo a brief registration process to do so, providing relationship-defining information (job title, type of institution they represent, buyer status, etc.) to which you'll have access. Every Vendor will receive the entire list of customers at various times as it grows, so you'll be able to contact individuals and solicit meetings.

Customer Appointments
Two weeks prior to the Market, a designated member of your team will receive (at no additional charge) a host license on our Video Trust Zoom account to allow you to schedule and conduct customer meetings. You'll be able to schedule appointments for yourself or request assistance from us (again, at no additional charge).

Since you control your own meeting schedule, you can also post an 'open door' for customers to join you at will during the 'open' hours you post on your vendor page on our site.

Weekly promotion
Between now and Market opening, we'll be sending a weekly newsletter out to plug it (and other things, like webinars). As you know, our newsletter gets big open/click results, and we've already heard from several customers who support the Virtual Market and want to participate. At this price — the gross revenue from a single DVD w PPR sale — what have you got to lose? Support for Video Trust is high, so as a member, you'll get visibility and increased good will in the community.
