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.
