8. Time to follow up on leads
After the event, it’s time to get in touch with all the people who wanted to learn more about your company and your products.
9. Increase visibility by optimizing your company profile
Your participation begins before the event has even started. Fill in your profile on My Easyfairs completely to give visitors the opportunity to get to know your company in advance.
The first step is, to complete all the basic information about your company. Additionally, write a piece of text about what visitors can expect from you as an exhibitor. If you have an EasyGo Plus or Premium package, you also have the option to upload your logo.
You can easily view your own profile on our website. Under “Participants,” you’ll find your own profile listed in alphabetical order, showing you how it looks.
10. Welcome more visitors to your booth by using the Invitation Service
No more business cards, everything in a digital overview! Easyfairs has developed the Smart Badge Reader and Visit Connect specifically to capture leads in a sustainable and efficient way during an event.
We offer two digital options to gather visitor information instantly. The Smart Badge Reader and Visit Connect are designed to easily collect visitor information.
EasyGo is a service based on the latest developments in digital marketing technology. It is part of Easyfairs’ standard offering, but you can choose one of the three packages that best suits your objectives.
Visit Connect is an online platform that you can access on your smartphone or tablet. With Visit Connect, you can easily gather information from visitors at your booth. By scanning the visitor’s badge with the tool, you receive all the data you need for lead follow-up.
- Do I know how many Smart Badge readers are included in my package?
- Have I prominently placed my Smart Badge reader at the booth?
- Have I educated my staff on how the reader works?
- Do my staff have the Visit Connect webpage open?
- Do my staff each have their own profile for Visit Connect?

11. Increase the number of leads by maximizing the use of Smart Badge technology
During the trade fair, you’ve digitally collected leads with the Smart Badge Reader and Visit Connect. Of course, you want to follow up on these leads. In this video, we’ll show you how to easily receive, download, and follow up on your leads.
On the last day of the trade show, about an hour before the event ends, our team will come to pick up your Smart Badge Reader. If you prefer to leave it a little longer, you can return it yourself at the exhibitor’s desk at the end of the trade show.
12. Qualify your leads with Visit Connect
The leads from Visit Connect are immediately visible in the Visit Connect web browser. The leads from the Smart Badge Reader are only available after the trade fair once the reader has been returned. At that point, you will receive an email from us with instructions on how to download your leads in the My Easyfairs environment.
13. Why do you need two lead generation tools?
The use of the Smart Badge Reader is initiated by the visitor. The visitor decides whether to hold their Smart Badge against the reader. Visit Connect is initiated by the exhibitor. During a conversation, you can determine whether the visitor may be a potential customer. You can then scan the Smart Badge with Visit Connect.
