Q: What is Connect, often called Matchmaking?

A: Connect is a matchmaking and networking solution that helps to connect attendees with exhibitors before, during and after an event.

Connect has the ability to generate recommended matches for event participants based on precise matching criteria located within My Profile.

Attendees can generate a list of exhibitors who are their recommended best matches based on exhibitor match criteria and demographics in your chosen categories. Accurate matchmaking means users can get started with networking immediately instead of spending time on searching for matches.

Q:  Why should I use Connect?

A:  Connect enables attendees to maximize their time onsite by networking and scheduling meetings with matched and favorite exhibitors before the event begins.  

Q: How can I make sure to receive the best possible matches from Connect?

A: To receive your best matches, be sure that your My Profile page has been completed. Most of your information is already in your profile, but it's always a good idea to review it in case important information has changed.

What will deliver your best matches, are the exhibitor match criteria and demographics selected for your interests. Your exhibitor match criteria and demographic need to be manually selected under My Profile. This is a very simple, but beneficial, step for Connect to deliver your best matches as this will return quality matches in Connect when you go to create emails and appointments.

Q: How do I unsubscribe from Connect?

A: Your My Preferences section typically located on this page determines your ability to use Connect features. Only turn them off if you do not wish to utilize Connect by receiving email and appointment requests.

 

*Disclaimer: Please be advised that not all content and functionality above may be available as it is up to the event to decide what pages, fields and features they wish to utilize. If you would like some of these features for next year's event, contact the event directly to request them.
