The Prototype review gives you the opportunity to showcase new products, prototypes, and packaging distinct from your POP display. The products in this private and secure space receive feedback from experienced buyers. These reviews are helpful in launching new products, as they provide valuable feedback on uniqueness, pricing, packaging, quality, market interest level, and more. Vendors receive these reviews on the last day of scheduled appointments.
Buyers typically complete the Prototype review after the Opening Reception, as part of the display showcase Grand Opening. However, they have exclusive access to the room throughout the event for further review and reference. This is an excellent way to get a new product in front of buyers before appointments begin so buyers may familiarize themselves with a product before meetings.

The New Product/Prototype Showcase has the newest products to be introduced to the market and true product prototypes on display for buyer review. This secured area is available to buyers throughout the event, and the grand opening social takes place after the Orientation Banquet. The Prototype Showcase is where buyers evaluate products based on their uniqueness, packaging, price points, and potential market success.
How do I know my prototype is secure?
As this is a sensitive space, setup and breakdown occurs privately. You will be escorted into the area for both setup and breakdown, and are not allowed back into the space after setup. We provide a draping for your product to keep it private from other vendors setting up after you. The space is only open to buyers, and there is an NLGS staff member there at all times anyone is inside the room.
