WAN Booth Sprint

In 2019 we are introducing a new networking format called the Booth Sprint, which will give all exhibitors the opportunity to pitch their products to the enterprise community.

Preparation:
1. You will be provided with a stamp as part of your exhibitor package.
2. Ensure you nominate your speakers in advance & ensure they are at your booth at 2:30pm
3. Prepare a 5-minute pitch. Make it snappy, make it concise, tell them why you’re different!
4. Participants will chose the booths they listen to at random and in no particular order, which may mean that you may be required to give the same pitch up to 10 times within the hour.

During the Booth Sprint:
1. When the bell sounds, give your pitch. Make sure to stay within the time limit, as people will move on swiftly to the next booth.
2. After the 5-minute bell, please stamp the cards of all visitors.
3. When the bell sound again, repeat.
