MODEX 2020 is just around the corner! And whether this is your first time at MODEX or you’re a regular...
... these tips and hacks will help you prepare for your visit, stress-free.
Make (or Confirm) Your Travel Plans
This year, MODEX 2020 takes place March 9th through 12th, 2020 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.
If you’ve already booked your flight into Atlanta, be sure to forward it to people who might need it (anyone on your team, a significant other, etc.).
And if you haven’t booked your flight yet, experts recommend flying back home the morning after the show, or later.
That way, you’ll avoid rushing to the airport – and have more time to make last-minute connections and meet up with contacts you missed earlier.
You can still get a great room – and a convenient location.
Be sure to check whether your company has reserved discounted rooms or has other special arrangements, too.
Nobody wants to wait in long lines – or spend half an hour searching for an open seat/table.
If you want a done-for-you lunch and space to network, consider buying meal tickets and/or reserving a table at the MODEX BISTRO:
We haven’t eaten there, but it looks promising. (Open 11:00am – 2:30pm Monday – Thursday of the show.)

Reach Out to Your Network
Whether you’re exhibiting or just attending, you’ll be surrounded by interesting people from your network and your industry.
It’s the perfect time to let your favorite customers, sales reps, vendors, and partners know you’ll be attending the show.
Just drop a personal email to see if they’d like to meet up.
And you can expand your reach by adding a banner to your company’s website, tweeting to your followers, and using social media to spread the word that you’ll be at MODEX in Atlanta.
