Connect is a new online networking platform designed to bring Exhibitors and Attendees together before the start of the show. Exhibitors are matched with recommended Attendees based on their selected product categories. Exhibitors can search for Attendees, view leads, send emails, and request appointments with Attendees at the show.

This tool is perfect for all exhibitors, as it starts the conversation early. While Attendees are looking online for exhibitors they want to see at the show, exhibitors can capitalize on this moment by reaching out to connect now.
