Strong demand favors strongest retail partners and other takeaways from the record event

Heraclitus, the ancient Greek philosopher, hit the nail on the head when he noted that the only constant in life is change. Nowhere was that more obvious than at this week’s Premarket.

In the not so distant past, 70-80 exhibitors would open their doors, a relatively small group of retailers would come to get first dibs on products that were scheduled to officially debut a month later at market and that was pretty much that.

Not anymore.

Thanks to the Covid-19 virus and a related concern that the virus might eliminate next month’s market, more that 320 exhibitors turned the lights on this week for Premarket with most saying they played to packed houses.
