These comprehensive category reviews, held at Paragon's headquarters over 2 consecutive days, allow our Military Exchange partners to compare dozens of future programs set directly next to current POGs.

All of the meetings take place within Paragon's retail showrooms which are designed to mimic the Exchange shopping environment.

Many important commitments were made and 2020 promises to be a strong ODL season for the Exchange.
