"The Symposium was an extremely worthwhile event for us this year. We made a number of valuable contacts and the procurement overview was particularly interesting and helpful. I was even able to schedule some meetings during the event, and made contact with some of our key customers. The event was a winning combination. Congratulations!"
Ilze P. Geller Global Key Account Executive
"A PlanetConnect Symposium removes us from the usual buyer-vendor scenario. At this event the communications are very collaborative and productive. It makes our job of understanding testing needs much easier. This forum is an absolute necessity for us."
Brett Gandy Global Accounts Director
"This PlanetConnect Symposium last year probably gave me 50 leads – not names, but leads. You bring great value to us because you host hundreds of researchers who are interested in our technology and I've made more than I paid for the investment of coming to the show."
Gary Boch Director of Industrial Markets
"Last year was incredibly successful and so we made a big commitment to come back this year. It allows us to connect to all the different parts of the company. We’ve gotten more value out of this than any other vendor show."
Janet LaBarge Corporate Vice President Global Client Relations
"PlanetConnect’s internal shows allow me to talk freely with the company’s scientists about their specific projects, which I wouldn’t be able to do in an open Forum. And it’s good for them to all come to one location and compare the new technologies that are out there. They share information and bring others over to meet us. That’s really refreshing."
Dennis Holloway Account Manager
"There was an increase in the activity at our booth by the attendees, which was a “breath of fresh air” compared to previous symposiums"
"The PlanetConnect Technology Symposium is of high value to us and is unlike any other traditional show in the industry. It’s an opportunity to get together with so many scientists from different regions and R&D programs at one location at the same time."
"There's a great opportunity to bring people from your company to meet with maybe the scientists from an entire lab. Because everybody's here you can do a lot of business in a short time. In two days you can do six months' worth of business."
BethAnne Willert Account Manager
"Our key account team can really focus together on our customers in depth and accomplish a lot of business in a few days. We look forward to this event every year!"
