Your Commitments as Hosted Buyer
Promise: Keep the AppointmentsHosted buyers come to GAMCE first and foremost to do business with our exhibitors. The purpose of appointments is to discuss a genuine piece of business that an exhibitor may be able to fulfill and respond with a solution. So… we recommend hosted buyers make a minimum number of 18 appointments during the course of the events. This still leaves lots of time for buyers to take advantage of other elements at the show –education, social events, FAM programs and networking – plus walk the floor finding new ideas, meeting new people and generally soaking up the buzz of the show floor.
