What is the dress code? Casual. No
ski boots. Well, maybe.
How many sets of appointments can I receive at the Trade Exchange?
Suppliers receive one set of appointments per company or organization. Tour operators may receive additional sets of appointments for an additional fee.
How many people from my company can attend the Trade Exchange?
As many as you wish. Each individual must be registered to attend the Trade Exchange. Suppliers still will receive a single set of appointments per company.
Is there a discount for sending additional people?
MTS has an aggressive team discount. It’s offered when two or more people from a company purchase any of the packages, (i.e., two or more of the program components). The discount varies depending on the number of people attending as well as the package purchased.
How do I request appointments? Through the MTS online Trade Exchange Directory. Each participating company submits a list of appointment requests. You will be able to search and review company profiles posted for the purpose of selecting appointment requests. Then, simply submit your list. ALL requests must be submitted prior to the appointment request submission deadline to be included in the pre-scheduling of appointments.
What is the appointment scheduling process? Scheduling is done based on 1) buyer requests and, 2) supplier requests. You will be able to log into Profiles & Appointments to see the list of companies with whom you will be meeting.
What is Direct Scheduling? Direct Scheduling begins once you have logged into Profiles & Appointments. This is your first opportunity to add to your pre-scheduled appointments. MTS provides you with the ability to contact attendees and request additional appointments. Simple. Easy. More appointments are better.
What is Open Scheduling? On-site, Sunday evening, April 7, a block of time is set aside for you to add appointments to your existing schedules. Open Scheduling is a way for both buyers and suppliers to seek out companies they want to meet with but with whom they do not yet have appointments. Attendees also can reschedule any existing appointments at that time.
Do suppliers set up a booth? No. Buyers will be seated and the suppliers will rotate around to their appointments.
