For any tradeshow – and especially when it’s as massive as The PPAI Expo – there is a lot of stress. Finding suppliers and products, keeping track of notes, and making education sessions on time are just a few common challenges.
Enter SAGE Mobile, our app developed to take care of these important details so you can focus on getting the most out of the show. SAGE Mobile is the official tradeshow planner for The PPAI Expo, and better yet, it’s free to everyone attending the show. Just register at go.sageworld.com/planexpo.
Here’s our shortlist of five ways SAGE Mobile helps you relax and explore the exciting possibilities at The PPAI Expo.
Create a walk list and never wonder where to go next.
SAGE Mobile holds a complete, interactive map of the tradeshow floor as well as a list of every exhibitor. Before the show, browse for the suppliers you want to visit or search for them by name, and tap to add them to your list. When you add your preference groups to the walk list, SAGE Mobile will automatically highlight your favorite vendors, so you’ll be sure to remember them. If you’re looking for something specific, you can search from the exhibitors in attendance, narrowing down your search before you go on an adventure to find it on the show floor.
You’re even able to create multiple walk lists and share them with other members of your team!
When you arrive at the show, SAGE Mobile will give you a map with the most efficient route to hit all the booths. As you visit each booth, simply check off that booth as visited. It will turn green on your map and save to your tradeshow history as “visited.” And if you end up at an unfamiliar booth, just scan the supplier’s barcode and SAGE Mobile will show you right where you are.
Take quick and easy notes.
SAGE Mobile lets you record your memos in four different ways: with text notes, photographs, videos, and voice notes.
And best of all, your notes are automatically organized. See an amazing product? Snap a picture and it will be saved to that booth and supplier.
When you’re back at your office, see all your notes in SAGE Online along with full contact details for easy ordering or follow-up.
Make your education sessions right on time, every time.
With SAGE Mobile, you can access the full Expo schedule at any time. Check what time education sessions start, mark the ones you want to attend, and even add them to your calendar. During the sessions, you can take notes and then email them to yourself or colleagues afterwards.
No internet service? No problem. Your notes will be saved on your device and automatically uploaded to SAGE Online when you connect again.
Connect with fellow attendees.
With the newly added Discussions Area, you can connect with other attendees at the tradeshow. This networking platform makes it easy to discuss products and retain connections after The PPAI Expo.
Keep up to date with your business back at the office.
With SAGE Mobile 7.0, you can do more than ever directly from your mobile device. Text a product to a client, search within the product results, insert multiple product images into a presentation, search for products from exhibitors at a specific tradeshow, and more!
For SAGE subscribers, this is no lightweight benefit. Being out of the office doesn’t mean you’re out of touch with your clients or that urgent tasks stay on hold.
The PPAI Expo only comes once a year – don’t miss your chance to find amazing new products, make new connections, and learn the industry’s latest developments because you’re stressing over the “small stuff.” Use SAGE Mobile to have a more productive and enjoyable experience!
