The annual ISA Convention is the must-attend event of the year for distributors, manufacturers/suppliers, industrial manufacturer representatives and service providers in the Maintenance, Repair, Operations and Production (MROP) industry. For the third year in a row, Industrial Supply Association (ISA) utilized FASTMATCH, an online matchmaking tool powered by a2z’s networkNow solution. FASTMATCH allows exhibitors to book 10 minute networking appointments with attendees via an online portal. For more details about how FASTMATCH works and the success that ISA has had with the solution, please read this Case Study on a2z’s website.
During the 2015 Annual convention 462 of the 570 (81%) registered attendees logged in to FASTMATCH to research exhibitors and accept appointments. This activity resulted in 2,546 confirmed networking appointments and 1,376 entries in attendees’ Expo Plans. An attendee’s Expo Plan consists of a list of the exhibitors that they want to be sure they see while at the show. These planning tools not only increased attendee and exhibitor engagement at the show, but also boosted the value they each gained from participating in the event.
