Lead Retrieval - Badge Scanner

NEW THIS YEAR! Lead retrieval is included in your booth package!

Lead retrieval helps you easily capture, qualify and connect with potential buyers who attend the show. You can also use the scanner unit to capture fellow exhibitor badges. Pick up your scanner or download the app to scan on your device at the event. 


Easy To Use – The Lead Retrieval Scanners are as simple as point and click so you can spend your time talking to potential buyers and not trying to scan their badge.

Accurate Information – Since lead data is linked to the event registration data, you will have access to the most up to date information available; even if updated during the event.

Flexible & Reliable – All of the devices are handheld and battery-operated. This provides you with the freedom to scan a lead pretty much anywhere, not to mention no additional power is required to operate the unit.

Additional Exposure – When you use a lead retrieval device from MicroSpec, your company contact details will appear on the “Who scanned Me” report of the individuals that visited your booth. This unique solution is sent to each attendee post-event and can facilitate proactive follow-up with you by the potential buyer.

Fully Supported Onsite – MicroSpec lead retrieval personnel are on-site throughout the show with fast and friendly service. They care about your experience so their staff walk the exhibit hall during show hours and visit booths multiple times a day. They’re always ready to answer any questions you may have.

Pick up your lead retrieval device at the registration counter onsite when you pick up your badge!
