What should I expect at Small Networking Meetings?

We are switching things up a bit!  From 9AM-12PM we are introducing Small Networking Meetings.  We will place 3-4 buyers at a table (table assignment provided at registration).  5-6 suppliers will receive a starting table placement (provided at registration).  Each group will spend about 10 minutes with each other and then the suppliers will rotate, buyers will remain seated.  Each supplier group will rotate about 15 times during the 9-12PM session.  The goal is have more intimate networking time on a larger scale.

Suppliers, we ask that you respect the other suppliers within your grouping and keep presentations 2-3 minutes long.  You are welcome to bring tablet presentations, but please do not bring giveaway items (save them for the Trade Show).

What is the format of the Trade Show Saturday?

After Small Networking Meetings Saturday morning, the Trade Show from 1PM-3PM will be traditional format where suppliers exhibit and the buyers walk the room.  Suppliers, if you are not sure what to bring or where your table is, please reach out to Hannah Goulding at hannah@tourconnection.com.  Buyers, you will receive the Event Guide in advance outlining where all suppliers are within the room.

What should I wear?

For the receptions, we suggest resort casual.  For the trade show, we suggest business casual.  Whatever you are comfortable with and be sure to check the weather for daytime/nighttime in advance.

How many buyers will be in attendance?

The invitation will be extended to all qualified entertainment travel buyers in the Tour Connection network. Tour Connection is hosting our top 100 buyers, however we expect 150 total.

What should I bring?

Vendors: Since we have a limited ability to store promotional materials, we suggest that you don’t bring anything you don’t want to have to store in your room. Business Cards and iPad presentations are likely enough. Buyers: We suggest you bring an ample supply of business cards and anything else you would want displayed on your table.

How should I arrange shipping?

Please email Hannah Goulding at hannah@tourconnection.com for shipping instructions.

Do I get a list of attendees?

All supplier attendees are listed in the Event Guide, provided both digitally and hard copy at the event.  We will provide you full list of attendees post-event, or upon request.

How do the Door Prizes work?

All suppliers in attendance are welcome to provide a giveaway such as complimentary stay, gift basket, brand merchandise, etc.  If the item is too large to fit in someone’s luggage, please provide a certificate.  You’ll bring your business card to the registration desk.  Buyers will select out of a bowl of business cards at random.  The winning buyer will then visit your table to collect their prize.  If you’re unsure, just reach out to TC!
