We want to attract the widest range of new and innovative products, therefore we are keeping this event free to participants. All accepted brands will be asked to ship samples. Since the event is virtual this year, there are no travel or accommodation expenses.

The goal of this event is to introduce new and exciting brands to 7-Eleven. This is likely your first interaction with 7-Eleven Inc and we want you to take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your brand to the organization and leadership. This is not a selling show, it is a networking and educational event.

Yes. All brands must complete the application on this website. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.  Apply here!
