Designed to produce results, ABM employs sophisticated online tools to offer a productive forum for communities and the private sector to conduct business. ABM levels the playing field to allow business connections to be made. This hyper-productive experience eliminates geographic barriers, condenses time requirements and reduces costs.

Your custom-tailored schedule offers as many as 31 pre-qualified twenty-minute meetings over the course of the event. These pre-scheduled appointments keep the conversation focused and efficient, and help to determine the next steps if a business match has been made or is possible.

ABM connects its national network in two ways:

  1. One-to-one Appointments: Delegates choose to meet in a confidential setting through the prepared selection of potential business matches.
  2. Online Profiles: Delegates create detailed profiles on the ABM business matching platform. Fully searchable by conference attendee or industry focus, these profiles feature business priorities, projects and partnership opportunities as well as products and services either required or offered.


Preparation is key. Because business matching is the central component of your ABM investment, your success depends on being active on the ABM system prior to the event — the sooner the better. Kick-starting conversations early gives you the best chance to lock in your appointments for full effect. Delegates who are engaged on the ABM system, active in accepting and declining appointment requests, and who show up at the event ready to go, see real results.
