Here at BizBash, we aim to provide valuable insights, tips, and trends across the meeting and event industry and give event planners and marketers wow-worthy inspiration for their next program. What if readers could experience this IRL, not just through a screen? This is what BizBash's live events arm, Connect, hopes to do with its Hosted Buyer Experience.
Along with helping event planners and marketers get business done with vetted suppliers, the experience optimizes networking opportunities and gives participants a glimpse into the future of event planning. A day as a hosted buyer at one of Connect's events includes attending pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings, exploring a dynamic trade show floor, sitting in on top-notch education sessions, and attending over-the-top networking events.
"Our shows are designed to help you work smarter, not harder," said Rachel Jackson, director of Hosted Buyer Experience at Connect. "We'll do all of the hard work so you can focus on doing better business and having some fun while you do it."
Upcoming Connect events with Hosted Buyer Experiences include:
- Connect Marketplace 2023 | Aug. 22-24 | Minneapolis
- Connect Texas 2023 | Oct. 23-25 | The Woodlands
- Connect West 2023 | Nov. 1-3 | San Francisco
- Connect DC 2023 | Nov. 27-29 | Washington, D.C.
