ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR Suppliers:
What is a reverse tradeshow?
Our innovative Marketplace system matches planners and suppliers for individual appointments based on their requests, as well as additional factors. Planners sit at designated tables and suppliers have 1-2 minutes to travel between appointments. A chime signifies the beginning and end of each appointment.
How much does registration cost?
Registration starts at $4,450. Non-appointment attendee registration is $2,000. Talk to your regional sales rep for more information.
How does the appointment process work?
Planners and suppliers will receive an email stating that the appointment request process is open. Mutual requests get priority, then planner requests are granted, followed by supplier requests. It is not a first-come, first-served process. As long as you complete your requests by the designated end date, your appointment selections will be granted the appropriate priority.
You will receive an email prior to the show with instructions for logging into the appointment portal.
Do I have to book my room in a specific hotel room block?
Connect DC suppliers are free to book rooms at their discretion; however, Connect has a courtesy block with our partner, Grand Hyatt Washington (website) in case you will be staying overnight.
