One-on-one partnering meetings at The MedTech Conference take place in the MedTech Connect Zone within our Exhibit Hall. The MedTech Connect Zone is open from 9am to 5:15pm on Tuesday, September 26, and from 8am to 12:30pm on Wednesday, September 27. When you book a meeting, you can base it off of the mutual availablity of the participants as well as the availablity of partnering suites.

Here are some tips to help ensure a successful partnering experience:

  • Make sure your profile is 100% complete. You can populate your profile by pulling information from a past event or syncing to your LinkedIn page.
  • Personalize every meeting request – write descriptive subject lines and don’t be vague in the body of your request. Let attendees you’re requesting meetings with know what you have to offer.
  • Designate the times attendees can book meetings with you and mark yourself unavailable to avoid receiving requests during times you know you’ll be unable to accept
  • Search for attendees you’ll want to meet with using the system’s intuitive filtering tools. Search by job title, function, sector and more.
  • Keep your leads all in one place by adding potential partners to your favorites.
  • Stay organized on site by adding the sessions you want to attend to your personal agenda, a feature that keeps all of your confirmed meetings and sessions in one place.
  • Respond to all meeting requests, including declining users that you do not wish to meet with.
  • Turn connections into true partnerships by following up long after the conference has ended using the Message tool.
