The first thing you need to do is register. The earlier you register, the better, as this will give you maximum exposure to potential partners and allow time to develop your meeting schedule. When registering, you can
select your own username and password.
The information you provide when registering is fundamental to your success at WMM, because other delegates and exhibitors will view this information and use it to decide whether you are a potential partner. Therefore, the more information you give about your company and objectives, the better.
The second thing you need to do is begin using the online diary system.
When you register make sure you do the following.
Add your company profile to the site, with as much detail as possible
Upload details of the titles you publish, including cover images
Upload a picture of yourself, which will make it much easier for people to find you at the event
Add contact details of all delegates attending from your company
Search the profiles of exhibitors and delegates to highlight potential partners
Engage in preliminary discussions with selected partners via the online diary system
Schedule appointments with chosen companies for selected times at the show
Decide which of the workshops would be of benefit to you and your colleagues
Your electronic diary
Each day at WMM is divided into 45-minute sessions. This provides an easy to use schedule, giving the opportunity to make the most of every minute. Through the online diary system, attendees are able to contact each other via the website. When a meeting is arranged, an email will automatically be sent to your chosen attendees, inviting them to the meeting. They then have the option to accept, decline, suggest an alternative date/time or engage in further discussion with you.
Please note that due to data protection we do not disclose your email address or mobile number via the online diary, but we recommend that if you are happy for delegates to use these details, that you include them in the initial meeting correspondence. Once you have confirmed a meeting at the event, we strongly advise you exchange mobile phone numbers as this will make it much easier for you to locate each other, should you have problems at the event.
You will also be able to edit your diary and block out times when you are unavailable.
Once logged in, you will have the following options:
Arrange new meeting – between publisher exhibitors, service providers or delegates either at the specified stand or in the allocated delegate meeting areas
View diary and edit appointments — check existing appointments, and amend if necessary
Personal appointments — this allows you to block times in your diary for whatever private reasons you may have. These reasons will not be displayed to other attendees.
To access the electronic diary system you will need your personal username and password, please note that this is the username and password that
you specify when registering.
