Interactive show-planning tools

The CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2011 show websites feature an interactive
"show planner" that attendees can use pre-show to organize their onsite
visits to exhibit booths, attendance at education sessions and meetings
with exhibitors.

Sept. 13, 2010 – The CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2011 show websites feature an interactive "show planner" that attendees can use pre-show to organize their onsite visits to exhibit booths, attendance at education sessions and meetings with exhibitors. For additional convenience, the show planner will also be available as a free smartphone mobile application.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2011 will be held March 22-26, 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA. Visit the show websites for the latest information on attending or exhibiting – www.conexpoconagg.com and www.ifpe.com .

The interactive show planner is searchable by hall/lot location, booth number, company name and type of product. Attendees can map out booth locations, schedule meetings and education sessions, and set appointments with exhibitors. They can edit and update their personalized schedule preshow and onsite.

"We know attendees' time is valuable and the show planner is a great tool to make the most of their show visit; they can focus on the people and products of most value to their business operations," stated Melissa Magestro, IFPE show director.

"We also redesigned the websites for the 2011 shows to be more 'user-friendly' and help provide a positive experience before the shows even start, for both attendees and exhibitors," said Megan Tanel, AEM's vice president, exhibitions and events.

Show visitors can go online to register in advance (saving time and money) as well as make hotel reservations and obtain travel assistance. International visitors will find information about the U.S. visa application process, official show delegations and official letters of invitation. Selected show information will be available in a variety of world languages.

Education is a key reason for attending trade shows. The CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2011 websites outline the expanded show educational, certification and training opportunities available, and registering in advance for education also saves time and money.

Exhibitors at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2011 can take advantage of several website features to streamline their show participation, including an online exhibitor services manual and marketing kit, the latest floor plans, directory listing forms and information on sponsorship opportunities.

And, coming soon are two new web features to help attendees connect with exhibitors: a listing of exhibiting company "technical experts" that will be at the shows and a "new products & technology program" that will highlight the latest innovations on the show floor. ###
