A Unique Networking Opportunity

Conferences provide great opportunities to meet your peers and other professionals in the industry. Pre-COVID, conferences were held in-person and provided a chance to meet and greet face to face and exchange contact information. But, due to timing and the volume of people, this can also lead to missed connections.

This year, we have the chance to do things differently.

Because the conference is virtual, there is an opportunity to expand your contacts like never before and our digital event platform will allow you to book individual private meetings with all the attendants in three easy steps.

  1. Choose a time slot and send a personal invitation message.
  2. Host the video meeting through the event platform.
  3. Export your list of contacts you have connected with for future reference.

This free online event will take place on April 8th, 2021, at 1 pm GMT. Click here to register now.
