Lead Retrieval & Tracking

Deadline: December 5th

Based on the feedback submitted from our exhibitor survey last year, we have found a great new lead retrieval system partner for WIN Expo. This new platform ties directly to our online registration service to ensure that you have as much information as possible while scanning your leads. There are no additional pieces of hardware required other than an Android or iOS device.

How To Signup

  1. Download the Boomset Lead Retrieval app via the iTunes or Google Play stores on your device.
  2. Select "Create a New Account", and enter your information. (If you used Boomset Lead Retrieval last year, you can login using those credentials.)
  3. Login to Boomset using the account you just created.
  4. Search for "Wine Industry", and select this year's event: "Wine Industry Expo 2018 (WIN Expo)"

Additional Help / Setup Instructions can be found here:

License Price
$150 = special pricing for WIN Expo Exhibitors

Scan Badges

Prioritize
Prioritize leads by marking them "Hot, Warm, or Cold." to make sure you follow up with important potential clients without delay after the event.

Take Notes
