"ProCONNECT's 1-on-1 format establishes relationships that last well beyond the event itself."
—Dan Gardner, ProCONNECT Program Director
"We get tremendous value - not only the business connections, but also the industry insights."
"The Vendors are here to help us - not just to sell their products."
"All the Vendors are really top-quality companies that we want to have strong relationships with."
"The format is the key to its success - a smaller environment, to create true partnerships."
Attendees discuss upcoming projects in 1-on-1 meetings with technical experts from ProCONNECT sponsoring firms.
Unlike a trade show, ProCONNECT 1-on-1 meetings are scheduled ahead of time.
Attendees can have up to 16 sessions (20 minutes each) with Vendors in a day and a half.
Discussions often continue into breaks, group meals, and the off-site party.
I've created some great contacts, and have been invited to follow up with them."
"I'm going back to my organization with some future partnerships - definitely with a win-win spirit."
A typical ProCONNECT event - just the right size for maximum impact for Attendees and Sponsors.
Attendees and Vendors meet 1-on-1 for confidential 20-minute discussions.
There's a buzz in the air as Attendees and Vendors discuss future projects and product solutions.
Making long-term partnerships is ProCONNECT's "secret sauce."
"The meetings with Vendors help us push forward with effective designs and cost benefits to our clients."
"I certainly learned things about the products and challenged Vendors to help us with projects and overcome hurdles."
Dan Gardner, Program Director
