Plan for Success

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 so you can meet with everyone you want and still have time to attend education sessions and networking events.

What do I need to do to prepare for AFFI-CON 2021 once the event technology platform opens in January 2021?

Step 1: Update Your Profile

The ability to provide robust details about what kinds of business you are looking to do at the show will allow you to make the right connections to grow your business at AFFI-CON. Be sure to update your profile to the fullest so that you, as well as other participants, are making the right connections. Confirm your information so you’re easy to contact before the event and beyond.

Step 2: Manage Your Calendar

The scheduling portal is centered around a visually rich calendar that contains your blocked availability, your confirmed meetings and events. All your meetings and sessions are color-coded by category, so you can prepare for and manage your time. Make sure to block off time to attend AFFI-CON education and networking events!

Step 3: Set-up Meetings

The core attraction of AFFI-CON is the ease with which you can view participants, request a meeting, accept a requested meeting and choose a time to meet, or even snooze meeting requests if you’d like more time to decide. The attendee search panel provides a variety of filters to help you find exactly who you are looking for. Once you’ve requested the meeting, choose where you’d like to host the meeting. Do you want to host it in your branded room, or make it more casual and pick a table in the virtual ballroom? The attendee panel also gives you the status of participants you’re interested in and shows you requests you’ve made that are still pending.
