What you need to know first
Event Owl is a new and unique way to attract and process Exhibitors. It is the only open access system on the market i.e. the only site where Exhibitors can search, view, book, manage, store details and pay for an exhibitor stand, on one site, on the internet.
It's to be expected that technology still baffles a lot of people. So when you are changing over from a paper based system - to any new software, expect hesitation and reluctance to embrace. We have a paper version of the main application form in the Downloads area in the footer of the site, and a generic Risk Assessment.
Just print and send this form, or the link to those wishing to pay by phone or other means, and we can handle their requests. A small one off admin fee is charged for each form and paperwork converted for each Exhibitor. Though as we've found most have a good go at loading their own details first.
You will benefit from being placed in front of Exhibitors whom you've never heard of and visa versa. It acts a community based platform. There is no sharing of Organiser databases required, each benefits the other by having their event listed and each's exhibitors can see everyone's events. Loyal exhibitors will remain, some will also go and many new one's will replace. The more event Organisers use the system, the faster the Exhibitor database will grow, this means the quicker you'll attract Exhibitors.
