With many conferences being cancelled or delayed, we’ve been aggregating exhibitor data from these events to help with your vendor sourcing, investing, and M&A efforts.
Specifically, we’ve now added SxSW exhibitors to our Conference Exhibitors Collection.
Just filter the Expert Tag column to find the SxSW exhibitors.
You can also find the HIMSS conference exhibitors in this Collection by filtering that column as well.
Once you’ve found the companies that are of interest, you can then drop them into your own Collection where you can manage the funnel, assign owners, etc.
Yup, a CRM with the data integrated — that’s CB Insights.
More conference exhibitors are coming soon. Bookmark the Conference Exhibitor Collection so you can stay up to date as we add more.
