Guidelines

ShopTalk is the general discussion forum for all MSA members to ask questions and interact with each other; it is not a place to advertise or do direct buying and selling of a product or service. Please note that buyers may ask for product suggestions at any time, and that vendor members can reply to these requests if they have a product that fits, however, unsolicited product pitches from vendors are not allowed.

The Buyer Vendor Forum (BVF) is meant to facilitate conversations between buyers and vendors and is a great place for vendors to ask each other for advice about business or initiate topics that affect only vendors. A popular weekly event on the BVF is “Product Pitch Friday” where vendors can pitch products according to a weekly theme. Please note that on ShopTalk, unsolicited product pitches from vendors are not allowed.
