Our custom Appointments Program lets you meet who you want when you want.
We’ve all been there—you arrive at a booth only to find a lineup of people waiting to engage that Exhibitor. You usually walk away and come back later hoping they are free. By utilizing the Appointments Tool it will help you maximize your time on the show floor. It puts the control in your hands to meet with who you want, when you want.
Booking Appointments is Easy
- When you register make sure you select that you want to participate in the Appointments Program. A unique URL will be emailed to you (early July) so you can create your appointment schedule.
- Select who you want to meet with from our comprehensive list of exhibitors.
- Include a personal note so exhibitors know why you want to meet with them.
- Download all confirmed appointments into Outlook or Google Calendar or print a master schedule to keep you organized onsite.

MANAGING YOUR APPOINTMENTS:
Once a request has been sent out, an email notification is sent to the party you wish to meet with and the request appears online in your “PENDING APPOINTMENTS”. When the appointment is accepted, it will move to the “CONFIRMED APPOINTMENTS” section. Use the print button to provide a detailed list of your CONFIRMED APPOINTMENTS to bring onsite to the show with you.
Please Note: Pending appointments will hold that time slot for you, until the appointment is confirmed/cancelled. You can not have multiple requests on the same time slot.
