A guide to industry events: Why you should attend and what Field Nation has in store

November 21, 2023


At Field Nation, we recognize that industry events pose the perfect opportunity to network and learn, which is why we believe these events hold a unique place in the field service landscape. Industry events aren’t just gatherings where you can showcase your services, they’re a chance to explore, grow, and connect with other leaders within the field service industry. Whether you have been in the industry for several years or you’re new to the professional world, trade shows and conferences always provide the opportunity to discover something new.

In this blog, we’ll not only provide key reasons why you should visit Field Nation at our next event, but we’ll also unveil exactly why attending these events is an impactful, professional step to take.

Visiting a Field Nation booth: the inside scoop

Frequently, Field Nation will take the opportunity to exhibit at industry events. If you happen to stop by our booth at one of these events, you’re in for a treat. Here’s why:

  • Product demos: As the #1 labor marketplace for IT, we’re proud of what we offer field service leaders and independent contractors alike. We want to show you how the Field Nation platform works, and our booth is the perfect place to experience just that. At our booth, you’ll have the chance to see firsthand what Field Nation is all about. You’ll get an inside look at the Field Nation workflow, from work order creation to tech selection and management. In addition to showing you the basics of how Field Nation works and operates, we’ll also demonstrate MarketSmart™ Insights, an exclusive tool for Field Nation Premier customers that aggregates pricing and coverage data from service jobs across the nation.
  • Information hub: The main purpose of our booth isn’t just to showcase the Field Nation product; we also want to give you answers to all of your questions. Our team arrives at each event equipped with key insights from the field service industry and we’re ready to share our knowledge with you. From insightful data about the labor shortage to thorough answers to questions you have about the labor marketplace itself, we can provide you all the information you need to bring discussions to your internal team.
  • Noteworthy goodies: Who doesn’t love freebies? When you stop by our booth, you’ll be greeted with a wide array of branded merchandise to select from. From socks to notebooks and pens and maybe even tools like screwdrivers and tape measures, we like to keep our inventory fresh. In addition to expert industry information, you’ll also have something fun to take away from your visit with us.

Attending industry conferences: insights and networking

Even if you’re not planning a visit to a specific booth or exhibiting yourself, there’s still so much to gain from attending these events. Here’s what you can look forward to:

Market insights: Conference sessions and trade shows are a goldmine for understanding industry trends and predictions. There are plenty of opportunities to learn about what’s hot in your sector and get an idea of the changes that lie ahead for the field service industry. With a volatile market like field services, staying informed and knowing how to adapt to the changing landscape is key, and the information you gain at related conferences can help you stay ahead.

Networking opportunities: Industry events bring together like-minded professionals who share your passion for the field. These events provide a chance to not only connect with people within your industry, but also allow you time to speak with busy professionals who might otherwise be hard to reach during their regular workdays. Attendees, whether they’re customers, prospects or peers, all have the opportunity to engage and share knowledge with others.

Happy hours and more: Sometimes the best connections happen just outside of the conference room at exclusive networking opportunities, such as happy hours. These gatherings that take place over the course of events are optimal for forging connections with current customers, potential clients, and industry peers. These outside opportunities allow you to build these key connections on your own time, whether it be during lunch, show sessions, or after-hour gatherings.
