Innovation Forum: Each Manufacturer/Sponsor will receive two 6ft tables to display their products, samples, swag, etc. All attendees will visit each display to meet you and learn about your products. This is where you want to showcase what you do and catch attendees' eyes before you head into your one-on-one client/manufacturer meetings. You are invited to display product, cook, provide literature and dazzle the attendees. The attendees will be incentivized to visit each booth via a grand raffle prize.
Client & Manufacturer One on One Meetings: You will be given a schedule of pre-planned meetings with our clients. This is a unique opportunity to have in depth conversation about conversion opportunities with our clients. Each meeting will be 25 minutes. We will do our best to ensure that we align clients to manufacturers with whom they have opportunities. Think of this as business speed dating!
Networking Events: This is what sets our event apart. It’s an obvious business building relationship when you are sitting at a table – specifically to dig into work. But take the chance to leave the office/conference setting with customers and have a little more fun. Learn about their operation really are over a little golf, fishing or even croissant baking. These networking events are what creates lasting memories in the customer’s minds about who you are.
