Columbia, MD (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
a2z, Inc., the Maryland based event management software company, is excited to announce that, for the third year in a row, the Industrial Supply Association (ISA) is experiencing great success with the online networking solution FASTMATCH® that is powered by a2z. FASTMATCH® is an integral part of ISA’s upcoming Annual Convention allowing attendees to book appointments with exhibitors and other attendees via the online matching and networking solution. The 2014 ISA Convention is the must-attend event of the year for distributors, manufacturers/suppliers, industrial manufacturer representatives and service providers in the Maintenance, Repair, Operations and Production (MROP) Industry. The Annual Convention will be held May 17-20, 2014 in New Orleans, LA.
FASTMATCH® provides exhibitors the opportunity to create an online eBooth to showcase their latest products and services to buyers before they travel to the event. In addition, exhibitors are matched with registered attendees who indicate interest in the exhibitor’s product categories. Exhibitors can directly connect with attendees who the system matches them with or that the exhibitor desires to reach via direct emails as well as appointment scheduling tools.
When attendees log in to FASTMATCH®, they are greeted with various planning tools designed to help attendees be more productive when onsite. Attendees are able to search for exhibitors by keywords and products, create a list of their favorite exhibitors, and directly contact these exhibitors to schedule onsite meetings. In addition, attendees can connect with other matched or favorite attendees via email and use the appointment feature to schedule onsite meetings with fellow attendees. Attendees can then build a personalized itinerary consisting of their favorite exhibitors, exhibitor and attendee meetings, and personal meetings.
