ChannelExChange is a new program of pre-scheduled private meetings conducted between exhibitors and attendees in hotel suites on the Tuesday before and Friday after the two day show, as well as in exhibitor booths or networking areas during the expo hours. The goal is to formalize and improve the efficiency of this type of meeting, which historically have taken place during the convention but in a more informal fashion, and increase their numbers by facilitating the process and adding value to your attendance at the convention.
ChannelExChange is facilitated through our new online technology partner, eShow, which allows attendees to connect with exhibitors by searching out and communicating with them within the eShow system prior to arriving onsite. You can search exhibitors by name or product categories, then target and connect with them for definitive meeting times, whether in a suite, in the booth, or even in a restaurant! You can also review, select and schedule the educational program offerings of the event in which you intend to participate. And when you’re finished, you have a downloadable, detailed itinerary for your time at the convention. It provides you more control over your time, so less time is spent “just walking the aisles” looking for someone to talk with!
