MEETINGSTECH OPPORTUNITIY

You and your client’s participation and in-person testimonial will be a matchless opportunity to foster and further meaningful connections with your key buyer target audience.

We are intentionally limiting this event’s participation – only 20 tech solution providers will be accommodated. We also understand that quality trumps quantity when it comes to prospecting, therefore Northstar Meeting’s Group will be fully hosting up to 20 prequalified buyers, each committed to purchasing more than $10,000 of meetings tech in the next 18 months. Buyers that cannot commit to purchase at this time may still attend MeetingsTech with a paid registration. 

Our goal is to ensure you easily connect with potential business partners and gain priceless brand exposure, for your company and products, through extended coverage in Northstar’s multiple media channels.

 

MORE THAN A DOLLAR SIGN

MeetingsTech provides a unique opportunity for one of your customers to present your product and/or platform to a qualified group of meeting and event organizers and tech purchasing agents. With each of the selected tech solution providers hosting one of their customers, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with each of these buyers that have already embraced the use of meeting technology.  

Additionally, Northstar Meetings Group, Shepard and DAHLIA+ Agency will host up to 20 non-presenting, qualified event technology buyers — representing associations, corporations and independent organizers — all vetted for their demonstrated interest in implementing new event technology and the committed budget to purchase.
