Wholesale Buyer

A wholesale buyer is known as a supporting member. A supporting member gets priority access to exhibitors that want to wholesale. This is a huge advantage, with the launch of CIMTA Exclusives, they will be the first to buy them. In addition, the wholesale buyer will get lunch for their associate which is a part-time/full-time helper at your store. A supporting member has voting rights and is welcome to attend the annual general membership meeting.

Please note that a supporting member is not a buyer that wants the cheapest prices. Supporting Members are shop owners (online & brick and mortar) that buy for the purpose of resell. If you are not a shop owner, please join CIMTA for the Retail Show. In addition, please visit our Friends link to find a shop in your own hometown.

A complete list of exhibitors will be released November 4th. If you are on our mailing list, you will get regular updates about new exhibitors. Also, on this page will be a link to pre-register for the show and workshops. All attendees must pre-register as we no longer accept walk-ins. Be sure to check out the link on the top for "Getting Here & Staying Here" for information about booking your rooms. You do not need to purchase tickets for the retail show, it's complementary with supporting membership.

Most of all, thanks for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the show!!
