Set default meeting locations for your exhibitors

Prioritize where meetings take place

Grip already had the ability to assign multiple locations to a profile, but we're adding the option to define a default location for meetings when importing data to Grip, as well as allowing organizers to update the default location on the profile settings page. This will ensure that attendees are directed to the correct location, and meetings with representatives take place at the main booth as a priority.

Hyperlinks on profiles get a glow up

Introducing link-type custom profile fields

Are you ready for a revolution in the way links are displayed on Grip? Link-type custom profile fields have been built specifically for input of web links onto a profile.

They will appear as a separate block on a profile page and, rather than displaying the full URL, will instead display a title and a description. This will make profile pages look considerably cleaner and more professional, giving event participants the opportunity to give context to the links they have added.

Explainer text for your custom profile fields

Absolute clarity on what you're asking for

We give you the ability to add explainer text to your Custom Profile Fields, allowing you to provide additional information to help clarify the information being requested, making your data more reliable. For freeform fields, this explainer text will be displayed within the text field itself. For pre-defined fields, the explainer text will appear at the top of the page.

You told us that you wanted more explicit control over who gets invited to join an exhibitor/sponsor Team on Grip, so this month we've added three big new settings to allow you to have better ownership of the process and associated data. These features are especially cool as they also give you further opportunities to monetize the platform.

Participant preferences now include companies

Grip's Hosted Buyer (Must Meet) capabilities allow participants to make preferences regarding who they want to meet at an event, helped by Grip's world leading AI-powered recommendations. Once preferences have been made by both suppliers and buyers, Grip's AI automatically populates everyone's schedules with the best meetings possible.

Most Hosted Buyer events in Grip are set up to allow participants show interest in one another (e.g. buyers to exhibitor representatives) but now, Grip also allows participants to show interest in companies, which works in the following way:

Control your data by setting minimum, maximum and required profile values

Minimum, maximum, and required fields for custom profile values

At Grip, we've never previously made any profile fields mandatory, for ease of participant access. But as organizers, sometimes there are data points that are essential for your event to run successfully.

By introducing minimum, maximum and required profile values, we can make sure you get the info you need for maximum event success.
