CONNECT

EMS Today’s Most Engaging Benefit: One-to-One Meeting Programs

It’s not always easy to pinpoint who in the crowd is genuinely interested in your product or service.  CONNECT and  MATCH! offer a simple and efficient way for interested prospects to come to YOU. Both programs allow you to pre-schedule one-to-one meetings, giving you time to do your homework, learn about your potential customer needs and walk into the show with a list of leads before it even opens.

Connect

CONNECT is our one-to-one meeting program open to all attendees and all exhibitors as a benefit of participating in EMS Today. You’ll meet with:

• decision makers or end users
• attendees interested in researching something they need now or in the future
• attendees who have specific needs or are just beginning to determine what they’ll need

Our goal is to help you make connections as easily as possible. The meeting platform opens approximately 4 weeks prior to the event.

MATCH!

MATCH! is our enhanced meeting program that guarantees a specific number of meetings with authorized buyers (or recommenders). You’ll meet:

• high-ranking department officers
• committee members and chairs
• attendees with purchasing authority and power who have demonstrated an immediacy of purchase

MATCH! is intended to help our decision makers cut through the crowds and sit down with those vendors whose products or services they are sourcing NOW. Meetings take place in the VIP Lounge so there are no distractions and no interruptions. MATCH! offers a more personalized approach to the meeting experience, shortening an attendee’s buying cycle and an exhibitor’s selling cycle.
