Exhibitor Booth Partnering is an extension of the One-on-One Partnering™ system in the BIO Exhibition. As a benefit of exhibiting, companies may schedule face-to-face meetings in their exhibit booths in the BIO Exhibition. Exhibitors build customized and branded private or semi-private meeting space in their booths in order to hold these partnering meetings.
In 2013, Exhibitor Partnering hosted 5,430 meetings, a 25 percent increase over the 4,329 scheduled Exhibitor Partnering meetings in 2012.
465 Exhibitor Meeting Points were built in the 2013 BIO Exhibition (compared to 411 booths in the BIO Business Forum). 87% of these exhibitor meetings took place with Business Forum companies, while 13% were between exhibitors. 742 exhibiting companies participated in partnering in 2013, also up 5% from 2012.
When your company exhibits at BIO, you receive access to the BIO One-on-One Partnering System as part of your exhibit space package and your partnering meetings are held in your branded exhibit booth. Exhibitor Booth Partnering allows your company to have pre scheduled face-to-face meetings where your company’s thought leaders and brand is unified –in the BIO Exhibition.
While delegates that register for Partnering can also have private meetings in the BIO Business Forum, exhibitor booth partner meetings must take place in the BIO Exhibition and the number of meetings you can host is determined by the size of your booth.
To maximize your partnering opportunities at BIO, don’t be limited by the size of your booth. Expand your exhibit space to accommodate more meeting points or register additional company representatives for the BIO Business Forum to participate in a greater number of meetings.
