AMPP Connect

Exclusive networking with the new AMPP Connect

The program that builds opportunity for new business relationships

When CORROSION and Coatings+ joined forces, AMPP created an all-new way for industry buyers and sellers to meet and discuss corrosion mitigation products and services for those in the coatings industry through our hosted buyer program called AMPP Connect.

What is a hosted buyer program?

Hosted buyer programs have become very popular across many industries as a way to help exhibitors (sellers) increase their potential to make effective business relationships. These events invite pre-qualified customers (buyers) to attend an industry trade show and pay their way to encourage participation. To ensure they maximize sales potential, buyers commit to appointments with exhibitors in advance of the show. Their itineraries are structured, so no time is wasted wandering the show floor aimlessly.

Who are the buyers?

A hosted buyer is typically a senior decision maker responsible for making buying decisions for their organization locally or across the globe. They come from a range of different sectors all with a common goal in mind, to search for new business partners who can create better business results for their organization.
