First-Time Attendee Resources

AFFI-CON is a unique event that requires advance preparation to get the most value out of your time.

Over the course of AFFI-CON, most attendees hold over 20 business meetings with their buyers, suppliers and logistical partners. It is critically important to set these meetings up in advance of your arrival so you can meet with everyone you want and still have time to attend education sessions and networking receptions.

To help our first-time attendees have a successful meeting we hosted our second annual AFFI-CON 101 Webinar on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. EST. If you missed the webinar you can view it in the right side bar on this page. It contains valuable information from veteran attendees about how to get the most out of this show. 

Additionally, we encourage all attendees to download our conference app and use the new match-making feature inside it to find companies you can do business with based on what you are looking to buy or sell at the event. 

If you review these resources and still need assistance you can reach out to the AFFI staff with your specific questions.  

Business Meeting Concierge Service

To help get you started building your meetings schedule, we connect first-timers already registered for AFFI-CON 2020 with companies they could do business with based on what they are looking to buy or sell at AFFI-CON. Please fill out the form below and once the early registration deadline passes on November 8, we will begin replying with a few suggestions for attendees you can connect with through the conference app.
