Enabling and Using Lead Retrieval for In-Person Events

The lead retrieval and video booth combination is an add-on event organizers can apply per exhibitor at a standard rate of $99 / exhibitor. This feature is called the Premium Exhibitor Booth in PheedLoop’s dashboard. Lead Retrieval works for virtual, hybrid, and on-site events. 

Exhibitor lead retrieval is ideal for organizations looking to track and manage exactly who stopped by their on-site or virtual booth. This feature allows staff to scan attendee badges with your smartphones on-site or virtually, collect contact information and notes, capturing leads in real-time. Key contact information for your leads will be made instantly available in the exhibitor portal.

Event organizers can also retrieve this information through the Event Dashboard.

If interested, exhibitors can purchase lead retrieval via the exhibitor portals, or event organizers can purchase the credits with their admin account and enable the feature for the exhibitor. This article will cover Lead Retrieval from the perspective of both an event organizer and exhibitor.
