Once you login, you will automatically have recommended attendees to request meetings. See how to get started  here >>

PLEASE NOTE: It  is very important you log in and update your profile so attendees can find you when they get access to the platform. The first person from your company to sign into HD Connect will automatically be assigned as the default administrator.

Simple FAQ’s

How does this work?

A: We have invested in advanced technology to help deliver recommendations for your company to schedule onsite meetings with the best fitted registered attendee purchaser.

What is the difference between showing interest and scheduling a meeting?

A: Showing interest creates a connection with an attendee. Once you’ve created a connection, you can use chat and share contact details. If you request a meeting and it’s accepted it creates the connection as well, if you already didn’t have a connection with that attendee.

Is there a dedicated meeting location on the HD Expo show floor?

A: Yes. All meetings default to the exhibitor’s booth. You can also meet at the HD Connect Lounge located at booth #4263.

How do your recommendations work?

A:  Each buyer is required to answer qualified demographic and business related questions. Based on their registration requirements our algorithms are mapping their qualifications to your product categories and providing you with a top reccommended list of matchmaking opportunities.

Is the attendee involved in this process?

A: Yes. The buyer will receive an account upon completion of their registration. This tool helps attendees navigate the products/services at the show + save their time by connecting with you pre and post-event.

Can we utilize this tool after the show?

A: Absolutely. You can still connect with the buyers until the end of July 2023.

Will my booth staff have access?

A: Yes. Please be sure you register individual onsite staff members to grant them access to their own unique profile so they can set up meetings. IMPORTANT NOTE: The first person from your company to sign into HD Connect will automatically be assigned as the default administrator. To join the platform afterward, team members will need to request an invite from the administrator. Make sure to coordinate with your team to decide who should take this initial step.

Does this tool cost me anything?

A: We do not charge to utilize this tool. Each exhibitor will be receiving full access.
