Exhibitor Booth Partnering is one of two types of partnering available at the BIO International Convention. Unique to exhibitors, this type of partnering allows exhibiting companies to schedule face-to-face meetings with senior level management and investors.
As part of the exhibit package, exhibiting companies receive access to the BIO One-on-One™ Partnering System, the online portal that conference attendees use to identify prospective business partners in the BIO Exhibition and the Business Forum.
All Exhibitor Booth Partnering meetings take place in the BIO Exhibition. This means that when an exhibitor has a meeting with a Business Forum delegate, the delegate exits the Business Forum and meets with the exhibitor in the exhibitor’s exhibit space. Exhibitors build customized and branded meeting spaces in their booths or pavilions in order to host these meetings.
Exhibitor Booth Partnering was launched in 2012 as a way to extend the One-on-One™ Partnering System beyond the borders of the Business Forum. Since then, more and more exhibitors have taken advantage of this service. Exhibitor Booth Partnering grew by 30% last year at the 2014 BIO International Convention, where exhibitors scheduled over 7,000 meetings.
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 are 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.
