We understand how important it is to streamline the process of onboarding your vendors/exhibitors and sponsors to a new platform and want to help optimize this process. In this article, we will identify some best practices for this process, based on our experience, that will simplify the user experience and encourage customer engagement with their deliverables.
- Be sure to include a link to your Showcase Page or Profile Page. If you have a single event, stick to the Showcase Page link. If you have more than one event on the platform, using your Profile Page link will increase the chance of multiple orders from each exhibitor!
- You can include some notes explaining the process and letting them know that they can check out your event's info on that page, and begin applying by adding an item to their cart from the Opportunities Box.
- It's also great to include links to the following tutorials. This will give them the tools they need to submit an application right away and manage their orders, even if they do get confused. Again, this will increase the likelihood of them applying right away:

- Last, be sure to include a note that they should reach out to email@example.com with questions regarding their account or how to use features on Event Hub. That way we can field those questions for you!

Intro for Manual Submissions
If you had any paper applications before going live on Event Hub, you will need to add those orders into the system by creating a Manual Submission. When you do, an account is created for the exhibitor. Click here for more on manual submissions!
To prevent any confusion, it's best to reach out to them beforehand to let them know how the process will work for them and why it is to their benefit as well.
