NAED conferences are the perfect way to connect with your colleagues and industry partners. The Attendee Hub will be open to registrants and their appointment contacts to start booking appointments beginning in early July. The Hub is updated daily so if you just registered, it may take a day before your name is added to give you access.

B2B BOOTHS

Distributor members will host the booths while other attendees travel from booth to booth. Attendees are responsible for setting appointments in advance. Each session consists of 30-minute appointments with a five-minute break in between each appointment or an open format.

    • Distributor members will be assigned a booth only if the sign-up form is submitted to NAED by October 24.
    • Distributors are encouraged to accept at least two appointments with smaller allied partners and manufacturers with whom they are not currently doing business with, if approached.
    • To maximize the benefits, the individual requesting the appointment should advise the other participants of the meeting's purpose and come prepared.
