Dear Visitor Please Register

We humbly request you to take the effort to register and collect your name badge onsite at an event, exhibition or a conference. Your visit is an important part of the success of the show.
The measure of success for a exhibition is the number of participants, the varied subjects within the specialization covered, and the concurrent conference, the quality of onsite services and mainly the visitor turnout and the quality vis-à-vis the “trade visitor” count as per the industry the event belongs to.
Good exhibitors and good turnout are both critical and important as far organizer is concerned and they are both interlinked, good turnout ensures good repeat participation and more, and like wise good exhibitors ensure repeat visits the next year by visitors and more.
It helps a organizer immensely when you register
1. Bring down advertising costs in future
2. Understand your demographic/designation profiles
3. Understand effectiveness of advertising
4. Understand your needs and demands
5. Predict future trends in the industry based on your response
6. Send out invites and updates to you about all the future shows and events
7. Exhibitor can attend to you better when you have a name tag/ category tag
8 .Gather visitor time spent/movement intelligence within the show to design and plan a better onsite layout for next show
9. The show is more secure when you know that everyone in the venue has registered before getting in
Most organizers have the facility for visitors where one can pre-register online or by post or by fax. The pre personalized badge may be sent to you in advance or it maybe kept ready on site for pick up. Online pre registration also ensures that the burden on onsite resources required for the registration is lesser.
It always helps if you carry your visiting card when you visit a event, conference or exhibition not only does it help you network better it also hastens the registration process by reducing the form filling/writing time.
Onsite registration is always dealing with the unknown, it’s impossible for an organizer or a registration agency to put an exact figure pre event on the onsite visitor turnout. This leads sometimes to an unmanageable onsite registration situation and not such a great visitor experience. But the experienced and professional onsite registration agency will have a back up plan ready to handle onsite visitor crowding.
The registration helps the organizer put up a better event/exhibition show for you. So dear trade visitor we request to please co-operate and register.
