Hotel Discount & Travel
February 21—22, 2018 at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C. was specifically chosen as our host city not only because it’s such a desirable destination and centrally located, but because of what the city represents, the pursuit of the American Dream.
About Marriott Wardman Park
Ideally located in Northwest DC's Woodley Park neighborhood, the Washington Marriott Wardman Park offers the best of both worlds. The hotel, which celebrates its 100th year in 2018, provides a quiet respite in the heart of the city with 16 acres of manicured gardens.

Lead Retrieval & Tracking

We have found a great new lead retrieval system partner for USBevX. This platform ties directly to our online registration service to ensure that you have as much information as possible while scanning your leads. There are no additional pieces of hardware required other than an Android or iOS device.
How To Signup / Order Lead Retrieval
- Download the Boomset Lead Retrieval app via the iTunes or Google Play stores on your device.
- Select "Create a New Account", and enter your information. (If you've used Boomset Lead Retrieval before, you can login using those credentials.)

Prioritize leads by marking them "Hot, Warm, or Cold." to make sure you follow up with important potential clients without delay after the event.

Search & Filter
Easily search leads by name, or filter them by date scanned, company name, or priority level.
One log-in / license can be used on multiple devices, and all scanned leads will be copied into the same lead list. If you need separate / multiple lead lists, additional licenses will need to be purchased. For example - You can create an account and purchase one license using your login email and password. Your colleagues can then download the app and use your same login email and password to access the platform and scan leads into the same list.
Please Note: USBevX does not provide every Exhibiting company with an attendee list after the show.
The only way to capture the information from the attendees at the show are by using this service. If you are using a generic QR code reader to scan Boomset generated QR codes, the information for that attendee will not show up. You must use Boomset's Lead Retrieval app to scan these codes.
