If You Missed the PLMA Show – Checkout the Briefings.

If you missed the annual PLMA 2012 Private Label Trade Show this past week, the trade organization has conveniently provided a set of video briefings from the trade show. Viewers can learn about the trends, products and companies that exhibited. TV personality Jodi Daley and PLMA president Brian Sharoff host the briefings from the trade show floor. While Morning News Beat columnists Michael Sansolo checks out new products, Tim Simmons interviews the seminar speakers, and David Skarie offers insight about what manufacturers and retailers are thinking.

Stay tuned for the week after Thanksgiving when I will have a series on my favorite parts of the show.
