The Big Pitch is a partnership of product development and digital media specialists dedicated to bringing great ideas to the broadest possible audience. We are trade show industry veterans who understand how difficult it is to cut through the noise and get a great idea onto shelves of major retailers—both brick-and-mortar and digital.
In Seasons 1 through 3, The Big Pitch produced a dozen half-hour TV Shopping Shows for FOX Business featuring the most promising products from the 5-minute exhibitor pitches we filmed at trade-only events—including Magic, SuperZoo, International Home + Housewares, Sports Licensing and Surf Expo. We also provided companies with professionally edited clips of their pitch and connected them with buying groups, distributors and home shopping channels.
In 2018, we have taken a huge step forward and addressed a growing issue at retail: Buyers are hesitant to bring on new vendors or try one-off products—even though they recognize their potential!
They want to see a “track record.”
Our panel for each episode now includes at least one distributor who can purchase product for multi-store test-marketing programs with their existing retail partners.
Thanks to the new make-up of our panel, the Big Pitch test-marketing initiative gives a select group of trade show exhibitors a chance to prove they can play with the big boys.
