"The format is the key to its success. It's a smaller environment, where you have the opportunity to really dig into the needs of each person you're meeting with."



3.

Highest standards of program planning, scheduling, and execution — No wasted time, no "standing around, hoping for a meeting," as at a typical trade show. Every 1-on-1 meeting is carefully sequenced to move the program along in a professional manner and make optimal use of everyone's time.

4.

Efficient use of your time — ProCONNECT events schedule up to 16 Attendee-Sponsor meetings (20 minutes each) in less than 45 hours. Most Attendees and Sponsors can fly in the afternoon of Day 1 and fly home the afternoon of Day 3.



"I loved the intimacy of the event... and I certainly learned some new things."



5.

"A different kind of experience" — A ProCONNECT event is not a trade show, nor is it a huge conference. With total attendance usually less than 100, it's what many Attendees and Sponsors say is a much more "manageable" environment.

6.

Networking options — Frequent breaks, group meals, and the offsite event give participants lots of opportunities for informal networking and relationship building.

7.

Sponsorships limited by category — At ProCONNECT, we strive to have a wide range of products, systems, and technologies represented. In general, we make it our policy to limit the number of Sponsors in any single product category to three.



"This is our third event. We get tremendous value —
not only the business connections, but the industry insights we get."

—CEO, Product Manufacturer
