Efficient and Effective Meetings

The days of on-premise sales calls are over—at least for the foreseeable future. Challenges such as travel restrictions, budget, and time constraints have forced operators to be highly selective about meeting with suppliers. The Show is the industry’s opportunity to reconnect over four efficient days and make serious purchasing decisions.
