At any time, buyers can also source and shop via market websites, with links to both Catalog Connexion, interactive keyword-searchable catalogs, and ShopZio, a fully functioning B2B ecommerce platform, for year-round sourcing and shopping. In February 2021, IMC_di will launch JuniperMarket, a new digital marketplace extending the market experience.
