Frequently Asked Questions
What's the purpose of the directory update?
To help WEFTEC registrants find you. Your information will be listed in the WEFTEC mobile app, the web version of the app, the printed conference program distributed to all attendees, the WEFTEC issue of WE&T (usually September), and the interactive Matchmaker.
Registrants use the exhibitor directory more than any other function of the app. In 2015, exhibitor directories were viewed more than 175,000 times, and exhibitors were bookmarked more than 28,500 times.
Why doesn't the form show my current information?
These forms are not connected to the database or app, so they are blank templates.
Do I need to fill out all parts of the form?
No, just the required fields and what needs to be updated, but we strongly encourage you to submit product categories
What if I just submitted a form and need to submit again?
Go ahead! Just update the parts that are new.
When will my update be live?
Updates submitted through June will be live in a week and a half after the launch of the mobile app in April.
Updates submitted July and after will be live in 2-3 weeks

the U.S. Commercial Service International Buyer Program Project Manager and to
