Plan meetings well in advance

You are far more likely to have a successful show if you have a full schedule of meetings prepared in advance rather than relying on ad hoc appointments throughout the week. TFWA distributes a list of pre-registered visitors to exhibitors, allowing them to make contact early.

Register for private meetings with key regional airports
