The purpose of the meeting, which will be held on March 7, is to bring members together for an educational experience. The meeting will enable members “to provide ideas, share their knowledge in problem solving and help to create new success stories,” according to a statement from Gourmet Catalog. Groupe SEB will be the co-sponsor of the event. In addition, Gourmet Catalog will host a Vendor Forum for its vendor members on March 6. The event will be moderated by Janis Johnson, Gourmet Catalog’s president and founder. The member meeting is a follow-up to Gourmet Catalog’s Annual Start the Year Member Conference, which was held at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market in January. “We look forward to seeing GC store and vendor members at the Chicago show and continuing the momentum built at the GC Start the Year event,” Johnson said.
