Appointment Requests by the Numbers

Seller requests are scheduled for appointments throughout three business sessions, except for Saturday morning which is dedicated for DMO/Receptive Sellers. Non-DMO/Receptive Sellers are encouraged to attend the Tour Operator Panels to meet more Buyers during this time.

Appointment books reflect a system that optimizes buyer and seller requests for mutual appointments first. After mutual requests are made, the system connects buyer requests to sellers and then seller requests to buyers. There is a maximum number of 40 seller appointments scheduled and the average number of appointments for sellers is between 15 and 20 pre-scheduled appointments.

Additional appointments can be made onsite during the Business Sessions. Buyers will display an orange “OPEN” card at their appointment booths when they are available to meet with unscheduled suppliers on a first come, first served basis. In addition, we strongly recommend that you attend all networking events and education sessions to connect with buyers throughout the conference.

If you want to reach the buyers by email, you may find their contact information in the online directory in the Appointment Portal.

SYTA Guarantee:

If you have not had the opportunity to meet with a particular buyer or seller company, let a member of the SYTA leadership or SYTA team know and we will assist with arranging a personal introduction for you! Our mentors, volunteers and leadership are available to help connect you with other attendees.
