Adventures in Structured Networking

Your conference was a success! Numerous attendees of the right quality, great content, busy show floor, and spot-on production. And you have a 75% renewal rate. Yay!

But wait – why did 25% of exhibitors/sponsors say “No thanks” to next year. The most common answer: we didn’t meet the right buyers.
In today’s event world it’s not enough to attract the right attendees and hope they connect with the right sponsors. You have to actively plan that connection. Learn how Winsight is working to ensure its sponsors have successful events.

He was once selected by min magazine as Editor’s Choice for the Most Intriguing Person in B2B. He’s still not sure what that means but hopes it’s a compliment.  In 2008, he was a contestant on ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’, where he used all his lifelines on one food question and walked away from another.
