So that Convention attendees can make the most of their time in San Diego, NBTA is offering tools to help delegates prepare and connect before arriving on site. Via the My NBTA Convention online social networking tool, registrants can search for colleagues, schedule meetings with connections, and create a personal calendar of Convention engagements and education sessions. Registrants can also utilize the new NBTA Online Exposition to discover new products and services, and users can connect with customers or suppliers to schedule meetings or demonstrations on the show floor.
Maguire added, “In today’s volatile economy, connecting with clients and networking with colleagues is more important that ever. We know that many corporate travel professionals consider the NBTA Convention to be the most valuable meeting of the year – where they can open new doors and seal new deals – and we want to do as much as we can to help them succeed.”
