January 11 – Marketplace Opens - Book Meetings and Engage Attendees

Brand experience pages will become visible to all attendees so have your page show ready to engage attendees via chat and book meetings with NAMM members, buyers and media—but no need to “staff your booth” as convenient email notifications let you know when someone is asking to meet or chat with your brand, plus you can still make real-time changes to your brand experience page any time.

Meetings

  • Brand Page ‘meetings’ portal will be open for members, buyers, media to ‘request’ a meeting. Meetings will not take place until the week of Jan 18–22
  • All attendees can request meetings with other individuals (meetings will take place Jan 18–22)
  • It is up to you when and who you meet with—plus you can meet with any attendee, any time during the event, even outside of published meeting hours

Bookmarks

  • Attendees can bookmark companies, sessions, and anything posted on your brand page to start building their event

Chat

  • Brand Page Chat and Attendee-to-Attendee Chat will be turned on – although we feel volume will be low until Jan 18–22.
  • NAMM will be communicating to attendees to manage chat response time expectations.
  • It’s recommended to post a message in the Information section of your brand page to manage chat response time
  • We also recommend working on a Q&A ‘script’ to answer questions or redirect attendees quickly and stay organized
