Welcome to HCD Connect
Onsite meetings made easy
HCD Connect allows for the exhibitor to request/schedule onsite meetings with the pre-registered attendee buyer before the show starts and after the event. Once you login, you will automatically have recommended attendee companies to request meetings with based on their product of interest. Our proprietary software uses data collected in attendee registration to match your exhibiting company with the best recommended attendee company. The best part about this feature is that it’s included in your exhibiting package! No additional cost required. See below for FAQ’s + Support section.
