Hosted Buyer Program: Exhibitors
Could You Use 1:1 Appointments With 10 (Or More!) Vetted Buyers?
If your answer is Yes! your next step is the AAOE Hosted Buyer Program!
Exhibitors participating in the Hosted Buyer Program get to:
- Meet with the buyers face-to-face for a dedicated 5-minutes at a time (do you even have that much time in the Exhibit Hall?)
- Look at the buyers' demographics before scheduling appointments including practice size, location, number of locations, title, and level of decision-making within the practice
- It is a flat rate of $2,000 for a company to participate. Think of it as a very affordable $200 per appointment.
- Commonly asked question: "What if our company doesn't get 10 appointments?" We will refund you for anything less than 10 appointments.
- Example: Your company has only 8 scheduled appointments. $200 x 2 missed appointments = $400 refunded to you!
How does it work?
During the application process, attendees will be asked to provide purchasing needs or interests for the next two years. Exhibitors will provide specifics of their products and services. Based on that information, everyone will login to the system to rank who they would like to meet by level of interest for matching.
As an exhibitor participant, your company representative will be matched for at least 10 one-on-one appointments with qualifying attendee participants during the conference. This is a great opportunity to connect with interested buyers for a chance to hear about their purchasing needs and to pitch your product or service to them. Participating exhibitor company names will be listed in materials promoting the Hosted Buyer's Program, putting your company in front of prospective attendees.
On-Site at the Conference
Each attendee buyer will be assigned to a table for the entire appointment time block and exhibitors will move from one appointment to the next. Attendees will be encouraged to provide exhibitors with requests for proposals and ask specific questions to learn more about how the company's products or services could help their practice.
Each appointment will be approximately 5 minutes and will be held back-to-back with approximately three minutes in between when exhibitors must move to their next appointments.
Price: $2,000 per company
This opportunity is only available to AAOE 2018 Annual Conference exhibitors. Learn more about becoming an exhibitor.
