Get ready for ICE’21 with Handshake – 5 tips for the best experience

use handshake more efficiently

ICE’21 is almost here and that means Handshake is about to open and be ready for you to use.
We prepared a list of tips so you can use the full potential of Handshake and get to most out of it.

1. Check the list of already registered participants

Explore the registered companies and decide who you want to meet with. Once Handshake opens, send them a meeting request before sending meeting requests to others. That way your chances of getting a meeting with them are higher as they still have many available meeting slots. As new companies register, they will also appear in Handshake – so check your Handshake account on a daily basis. To make this easier, we recommend you bookmark your account on your devices.

2. When Handshake opens fill in your profile properly

This includes personal and company profile. Fill in your bio, position in the company, photo and contact info. Do not forget to upload your logo of your company in the company profile section. It will help other businesses find you when filtering and searching for you. You will be more visible.

3. There are two ways to arrange meetings

First, choose the time slot you want to have a meet at. Click on the time slot and then Handshake shows you available business representatives available at that specific time slot. Alternatively, you can choose the business representative you want to meet with by clicking on the orange plus sign at the bottom right corner of your screen. The software then shows you the free time slots you both have in common, so you can set up a meeting then. Check out the guidelines to familiarize yourself with both ways. 

4. Meetings last 30 minutes

Each meeting is 30 minutes, not a minute more. Use this time efficiently, prepare the questions you need in advance to make sure you get everything you need from your meeting. During the meetings you will have a timer showing you how much time is left and the meeting will shut down.  If your meeting is over before, use this time for a quick break and grab a drink as the meetings are back-to-back, it is intense.

5. Take photos – #ICEbehindthescreen

You will have up to 54 meetings per person. After three days of meetings, you will not know what you disucussed with who and what about. We recommend you take detailed notes, and take photos of your meetings! Make your meetings fun and enjoy this online experience as much as possible. Check out some photos from last year here

Handshake opens in less than 72 hours – Registered companies will get their log-in info soon.

If you are not registered but want to meet with businesses, register before Handshake opens so that you can be visible to all when launching.

Here, investors can find assets and proper management to ensure a safe and productive investment.

How the yacht-charter industry is becoming more interesting for investors?

Out of 100 million tourists who visit the Mediterranean every year, less than 1% are sailing on charter boats. The yacht-charter industry has been growing for 50 years and still does not meet demand. The value of the charter yacht, though depreciating, is held high by the unyielding demand. The steady returns and high re-selling value after 5-7 years generate yields up to 8%!

Turnover in Billions for Agents

Turnover in Billions for yacht charter

Crewed and luxury yacht rentals have spiked in the last few years, as the world’s rich and corporate clients queue up to enjoy the yacht chartering extravagance. 

The bareboat charter market is booming as well; the number of sailing yachts, motor yachts and cruising catamarans has exploded. 

Yacht rental market is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 6.5% from 2015 to 2020, according to the research carried by Future Market Insights. Furthermore, crewed and bareboat yacht rental market, which was worth €35 Bn in 2014, will be worth € 51 Bn by 2020.

By Future Market Insights, in bareboat charter in 2015 for agents turnover was 400M, and predictions are that turnover for 2019 will be 514M!

ICE is focused on the bareboat segment; including the whole bareboat fleet and parts of the crewed and luxury segment. This bareboat segment is responsible for only a part of the world’s yachting turnover but, at the same moment, it includes about 90% of the yachts and the workforce in this industry.

Because ICE is B2B, companies are not represented by hostesses and hired help, but by owners and upper management. 

This makes it a unique gateway to a new market for any visitor or exhibitor; a large and growing industry ready to be accessed.
