Reason 1. New Business and Commercial and Institutional Partnerships:
Participating in an event requires a certain investment, whether to register or register company employees, travel and stays or even be sponsored. For this reason, every attendee of the Atlantic Business Forum or Basalt Conference is looking for a return on investment and, as such, generally expects to conclude deals or Entrepreneurial / Institutional partnerships. After all, it's the biggest return you can expect from an event.

Attending Atlantic Business Forum and Basalt Conference can be a great opportunity to introduce other attendees to what your company or institution does, to connect with potential customers/partners that your company or institution has not yet reached with its marketing, and to generate new sales/business. All participants have a common interest. By participating in the event, it becomes easier to communicate how your products or services can solve a concrete problem encountered by your participating interlocutor.

Reason 2. Optimize the sales process:
Companies that participate in professional events know that it is very common to find a business opportunity for the company (Leads) and persons with whom contacts have been established before. In addition to being a good opportunity to meet the persons with whom your company or institution has only an online relationship, it is also a possibility to strengthen a commercial or institutional relationship with these persons and to optimize the business development process. If you communicate in advance that you will be present at the event, your most engaged potential customers and partners will obviously seek to meet you and therefore the process of achieving sales / business becomes much easier.

Besides the opportunity to close new deals and maximize sales, Atlantic Business Forum and Basalt Conference also present a great opportunity to find new solutions for your day-to-day business and activity. After all, in addition to your company, there are many others who are also there to showcase what they do and how they can offer solutions to common problems.

Reason 4. Knowledge of the client's reality:
Nothing compares to a personal interaction. At an event, great opportunities present themselves for dialogue with consumers, producers, distributors and researchers, and these dialogues can reveal realities and ideas that could not be discovered by analyzing online behavior. The information obtained during these face-to-face meetings can help your company/institution to better recognize the needs of your customers or potential customers and, thus, to introduce improvements to your products or services to offer.

Reason 5. Networking with other market professionals:
The events bring together hundreds of professionals from different backgrounds who have points of interest in common. Therefore, participating in the Atlantic Business Forum and the Basalt Conference allows you to develop market strategies, add more knowledge about the reality of the participants, make effective use of the time allocated and dialogue with other professionals on the main challenges they face in common, to answer questions, benchmarking or updating on innovations, sharing of knowledge with professionals working in the same field of activity.

Reason 6. Learn and update knowledge:
In addition to companies/institutions interested in talking to potential customers about their products, services and professionals looking for networking, face-to-face events also have another fundamental element: interventions by speakers, thematic workshops, thematic conferences, involving specialists who are widely recognized authorities in the fields in which they are currently active, who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to listen to them, know them and share their points of view. Keeping abreast of market best practices, scientific and technological innovations is essential for any professional who wants to succeed in his field of activity.
