Alongside the discussion and workshops, there are three unique ways that delegates will be able to meet, interact and hang out…

  • All registered delegates can contact each other and request one-on-one video meetings, either immediately, or at a scheduled time.
  • Various networking lounges will be open both days allowing everyone to check out who’s around, catch up or make a few introductions.
  • We’re running four targeted speedmeeting sessions where promoters and agents are matched with each other courtesy of some particularly clever computer algorithms. Delegates are connected for a five-minute chat, before automatically moving on to the next person.

Additionally, it’s possible for companies to host their own networking lounges for private meetings with up to 16 people. For info on this, please get in touch.
