ABOUT OPEN ON CANDID

OPEN on Candid is a virtual trade show platform that arose in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As real-world trade shows have been canceled or postponed, we created OPEN as a collaborative and free solution to help like-minded groups of brands open up, support each other, and build online communities of engaged buyers.

During each OPEN event, buyers have time-based access to a curated selection of brands, with the ability to make introductions, begin placing orders right away or schedule appointments for later. Brands have access to powerful tools for reaching new buyers and building orders faster.

ABOUT CANDID WHOLESALE

Candid Wholesale is a B2B ecommerce platform that helps brands, retailers and showrooms manage and optimize their wholesale operations. The Candid web app makes it easy to buy, sell, and pay for wholesale, with a strong focus on building relationships rather than pushing through one-time transactions.

Basic features are free forever, and all brands exhibiting at Portland Supply will receive Complete-level features at no cost for 12 months following the show.
