Webinar Description

Trade show organizers can be a fickle group. If they work for trade associations, their event technology purchasing decisions may have to go through the board. If they represent a for-profit organization, they may be more concerned about the bottom line.

The industry (peer organizers, vendors, attendees and exhibitors) wants to know what the market leaders think.

This webinar, a live Q & A with technology buyers from three major trade show organizations, will provide some answers. If technology is moving faster than the industry, we all need to know what to do next.

Here is a sampling of what TSNN Webinar attendees will learn:

  • How trade show organizers find out about technology
  • What factors drive their purchasing decisions
  • What internal procedures do they use to select and purchase technology
  • What kinds of technology they are looking at now
  • What their fears about new technology are
  • What they love/hate about technology vendors.
