Lead Retrieval

Lead retrieval at Accounting and Reporting Congress will be provided by GES Visit Connect and can be accessed via the ConnectMe App.

Signing Up

To access, log into the ConnectMe app. Your specific event code for the ConnectMe app is LS2024. You’ll see a Lead Retrieval button on your home page (if you do not see lead retrieval on the home page, please contact Lisa Marzoli to ensure you have badge scanning abilities set up). Clicking this will bring you to Visit Connect – you’ll then want to follow the instructions to add it to your home screen to simplify the badge scanning process.

**It is important not to forgo the ConnectMe app and go straight to downloading the Visit Connect App from the app store – this will disrupt your leads and may result in lost data. You must go through ConnectMe.

  • Each Sponsor company attending the physical event will receive a list of leads collected and access to the lead retrieval technology.
  • Once you accept the terms, you’ll be able to scan leads using the QR code scanner. Click the ‘Add Person’ icon in the bottom right hand corner. This will pop you into your QR scanner. Once a badge is scanned, it will appear your dashboard in Visit Connect!
  • If you are sponsoring a session, we recommend stationing a team member at the entrance to the session room to scan attendees that enter or exit the room for your session!
    • Please note: Lead retrieval is an add on to the ConnectMe app and will only show for sponsors who have had this feature added, most delegates will not have this feature in their ConnectMe app.
    • If you have questions, please visit the Informa staff at the registration desk or contact Lisa Marzoli
    • Leads captured using the Visit Connect Lead Retrieval App will be available to you immediately, in real time; as well as after the event in your Alchemy Analytics Report

**PLEASE NOTE: You will not see this technology in your app until 1 week out from the event.
