    What is the Lead Scanner App included with my exhibitor contract? Our Lead Scanner App is an excellent way to collect valuable contact information from each person you meet at Small Business Expo. The App is available for Android & iPhone. With this app, you scan the QR code found on a person’s badge at the Expo. Once you scan the QR Code, that person’s contact information that was provided to us when they registered will appear on your phone to save (i.e., First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Phone #, Company Name, Job Title & Zip Code). You can then put notes and mark the lead as Cold, Warm or Hot for future follow up. The App also allows you to export all of your scans into an Excel Spreadsheet that you can then upload into your CRM, Email Marketing Software, Contact Database, etc. For more info about our Lead Scanner App, please click here. NOTE: You scan the QR Code on attendee badges. This is not the full attendee list (registrant list).

    How do I get access to the lead scanner app?Instructions on how to download and use the app are included in your booth confirmation email, the exhibitor alerts and can also be found on our app page here. If you don’t have access to the event or for any app related questions, please stop by the Registration Area at the Expo.
