1.Do your homework

Researching the companies, that’s going to be there and decide which one you can add value.  You should know about the company, their operation. Be knowledgable about the companies that’re going to be there.

Figure out who they are and what they really do. Visit “about us page”, read their brochure and look at their latest news to see what’s new in their company. Also Find out who will be the keynote speakers

2.Make a target list

It has been said that the more you focus to serve everyone out there the more you the more miss out a ton of clients.

The biggest mistake you can ever make is to think that you should do business with all companies. But you should target a list of companies that you would like to work with. So narrow your target of about 4 to 5 companies and have meaningful interaction. This save you time and energy

3.High value Interaction

Once you meet with people in the industry events, show your passion about the industry and prove your expertise. Never go there exchange business card and leave.

Instead offer high value interactions. Why is this important? Because you want this person to remember you or even keep your face in their mind when next time you call for a meeting.
