Networking at Events — ‘'Connectivity on Steroids’’!
Today every meeting planner is being tasked with finding more innovative, more effective, more dynamic ways to ensure that delegates are networking among each other, not only during the meeting, but pre and post the event.

This interactive session will share the best options in both on and off line techniques that will allow and encourage your attendees to share knowledge in real time and to help them continue the dialogue well after the face to face event is over. 

Learners Outcomes:  You will learn

  • about the latest event apps and technology that facilitate networking

  • about fun interactive games that encourage networking

  • about the best practices in physical meeting design to ensure maximum networking
