How to Double Leads with Design

Derse

Metrie wanted to showcase their new Then & Now Finishing Collections™ in a way that would help attendees grasp ideas and inspiration as well as product knowledge.

However, when attendees come to booths as a group, exhibitors are forced to adjust their engagement and decode who the decision-maker is. But what types of attendees travel in groups, and what types of groups do they travel in? We examined hundreds of group lead capture results from five different clients across two years at HIMSS to find out. This whitepaper details what we found. Download the Whitepaper
