Meet Your Makers

To our valued manufacturer and distributor members,

Provender Alliance would like to invite you to participate in another year of "Meet Your Makers". Each year becomes more successful than the last. This event is something like a tabletop show only Provender-style. We are inviting Provender member manufacturers and distributors to come set up a table and tell the story of their business to conference participants. We hope this will be an opportunity for retailers to learn more about the people behind the products they sell and for everyone in the natural products community to network in a fun and informative atmosphere.

This is an unconventional sales event. Have fun. Dress in costume. No pressure to book orders, just an opportunity to let people see the human side of your company, your story, your values and your vision. We encourage you to be original and lighthearted with your table and gear it towards telling the story of your business as well as offering samples. We request that you or one of the key people in your company staff the table. This is not a place to send your broker in your stead. We want people there who are intimate with your operation. The Board of Directors will be hosting the event. Board members will have their own themed table, the better to get to know our members. Plus we’ll be handing out free beverage tickets. There will also be beverages for sale. We will be encouraging folks to come in costume and have fun while meeting and learning about the products that the exhibitors are offering. We have 22 tables available and will offer them on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in participating or have questions, please contact Rachel Mitrani at or call her at 503.841.1480.

Thank you for your consideration,
Provender Alliance Board of Directors
