The B2B meeting platform
This is your opportunity to book bespoke, face-to-face meetings, resulting in hundreds of new industry contacts and potential partnerships. The B2B meeting platform is an online platform where you can pre-book one-to-one meetings on the show floor with new prospective clients, partners, and industry suppliers. The service is completely free to all attendees with your all-access event pass. Jacob Underwood, Head of Machine Sales & Marketing at Newtown, echoes the importance of face-to-face interactions in the trade show industry, stating, "I've always been a strong believer in trade shows as it's great to get the product in front of someone. It makes a lot more sense if they can see it in person as ultimately, it gives the customer a better experience."
This is only available to pre-registered attendees and will be live in Summer 2024.
