Sophia Knows Your Trade Show

Product Overview

Every year it is so hard to figure out which customers are coming to NYC Retail Trade Show to get those meetings set up. The difference of having a decent show and having a GREAT show is having your meetings planned and setup before you get there. We have these contacts.

With a little reverse engineering, we have put together a highly targeted list of retail executives likely to be attending based on the companies that are listed as attendees. We have packaged them into a product called Sophia Knows Your Trade Show.

Included in this information are name, company, title, email address, website, address, phone numbers, revenues, segment, # stores, number of POS Terminals, and many other key company facts to help you sort.

We provide a customized list of approximately 4,650+ likely attendees (verified in the last month). All information can be sent electronically and used multiple times.

Titles included are the following:
Web, Ecommerce, Social Media
VP Merchandising, Chief Merch. Officer
VP of IT
Loss Prevention
Store Operations

Name, title, company, address, email address, phone number. It’s all here.

Below are some examples of the types of data you would not receive.

NOTE: These are not real names and contact information here.

Can I use the names multiple times?
Yes, we do not put a use limit on the lists. Once you purchase the list, you own it for use as often as you wish. For our Fair Use agreement, please see the Pricing Tab.

What is the format?
All lists will be delivered in Microsoft Excel format.

How many names are in the spreadsheet?
We pull from an overall list of over 150,000 confirmed retail contacts, and provide to you the 6,500+ personnel most likely to be attending NRF, with their name, address, and email contacts.

Are these opt-in emails?
Some are but most are not. This is a list pulled together from other trade events, our own research and many other partnerships.

Are these names Verified?
We have verified every email in the list within the last 45 days. People leave all the time though so there will be bounces but we have spent a great deal of time and effort to make sure this list is as clean as it can be for you. Most customers see well less than a 10% bounce rate.

Still have questions?
Feel free to contact us at ihl(at) or 615-591-2955

Our mailing lists are charged at $0.40 a name, which for 4,667 names would normally list at over $1,800. We are offering this targeted list as a special price of $995, helping your trade show dollars go further. All lists are yours to use as often as you wish. You are not renting a list, you would own it according to the agreement outlined below. We don’t play games with renting lists. Contact us for more details at ihl(at) or call us at +1.615.591.2955.
